Uniform Grant Guidance

The sample manual for administering Federal grants is the product of many months of effort. The Uniform Grant Guidance working group, co-chaired by Richard Cunningham and Victor Churchill, worked with the committee to produce a document school districts can use for Federal grants.


This version of the sample manual addresses policy, procedures and compliance issues specific to Federal Allocations for Special Education (IDEA, Section 611 and 619). Users of this sample manual must modify it for their specific district circumstances. We present the manual as both a fillable pdf and a word document.


The ASBO New York Uniform Grant Guidance Work Group used many resources in developing this sample document including 2 CFR, Part 200, information developed by the Texas Education Agency Region 7, Wisconsin Association of School Business Officials, North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and Florida Department of Education, among others. 


We hope this sample manual assists New York State school districts in creating a customized and useful document that is an asset in your compliance efforts.
