Organizations with at least one active HRSA grant. The workshop is open to 200 active HRSA grantees. 

Why are you hosting the workshop?
To inform HRSA grantees about a range of issues and questions they may encounter while administering their grant. The workshop will focus on grants administration from pre-award through closeout.

Who should I send to the workshop?
Consider sending a representative such as a business official or financial manager who is familiar with grants management; or, send a person whose primary role in the grantee organization is to administer HRSA grants.

What is the workshop agenda?
See the draft agenda.

I’m coming from out of town. Where should I stay?
There are numerous hotels near HRSA Headquarters. (See: Area Hotels)

Is the workshop location accessible via public transportation?
Yes. HRSA Headquarters is approximately 0.5 miles from the Twinbrook Station on the Red Line. Additionally, there are hotels within walking distance to the building. 

Will you provide lunch or other food?
We will not provide meals. However, attendees can preorder food from the onsite cafeteria and there are restaurants nearby.  Attendees will have an hour for lunch to allow sufficient time for security screening to re-enter the Federal Building. (See: Lunch Options)

Will I need to pre-register for the workshop to attend?
Yes.  Due to space and federal building security restrictions, we are unable to accept walk-up registrations the day of the workshop. (See: Security)

Can I use some of my HRSA grant funds to attend the workshop?
It depends. Generally, travel costs for technical assistance workshops are allowable; however, there may be specific grant program legislation that limits using grant funds for this purpose.
Because travel costs may or may not be allowable or included in the grant budget for your program, please check with your grants management specialist and project officer.

When will the workshop begin and end?
The first session will begin around 8:30 a.m. on May 19, and the final session will end no later than 4:30 p.m. on May 20. We recommend allowing at least 20 minutes to complete security screening and registration on the first day. An agenda will be sent to registered attendees prior to the workshop.
