Organizations have the most success with managing their award and staying compliant when they receive the training needed to at least understand the fundamentals of federal grants.

 3. Helps the organization become prepared for an audit or a site visit from the awarding agency

My name is Patrice Davis and I am the founder and CEO of Grants Works, a grant consulting company, and the lead trainer for Grants Works Academy.

I have over 15 years of experience managing or overseeing federal grants for large and small nonprofits, a top research university, and I reviewed grant continuation applications when I was employed at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

I managed federal awards as a recipient, subrecipient, pass-through entity and my work as a federal employee helped inform my experience.

Since 2005, I successfully administered over $129 million in federal, state and county grant funding from 17 city, county, state and federal agencies.

I provided training on Uniform Guidance (2 CFR 200), HHS’ adoption of Uniform Guidance (45 CFR 75) and managing grant-funded travel. I am also a fiscal consultant during site monitoring visits of federal recipients of grants from the Health Resources and Services Administration.

I am a member of the National Grant Management Association, Grant Professionals Association, and Georgia Grant Professionals Association.
