“Managing a nonprofit’s grants and contracts is a multifaceted and complex task. Having a seasoned grants manager is essential for any organization especially one that receives multiple grants (including federal awards). A well-trained grants manager will not only coordinate the entire grant process — from development through closeout — but he/she will also ensure ongoing communication throughout the grant’s lifespan.”
