About the Training

July 2015, the US Department of Health & Human Services sent notification to all Centers for Independent Living receiving federal funds that they would need to submit an indirect cost rate proposal instead of the cost allocation plans required by the US Department of Education. The webinar is a first-step in helping CILs prepare for the new requirements.

The training is an overview of indirect cost rates and the new requirement for CILs.

Target Audience

CIL and SILC executive directors, financial and program managers, and other staff involved in accounting and management of CILs receiving federal awards.
