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 award through closeout.

I’m coming from out of town. Where should I stay?

There are numerous hotels near the HRSA San Francisco Regional Office. (See: Area Hotels)

Is the workshop location BART-accessible?

Yes. The San Francisco Federal Building is approximately 0.2 miles from the Civic Center Station. From SFO, take the Yellow Line toward Antioch. (See: Transportation).

Will you provide lunch or other food?

We will not provide meals. However, there are restaurants nearby and you will have 90 minutes for lunch to allow you sufficient time for security screening to re-enter the San Francisco Federal Building. (See: Lunch Options)

Will I need to pre-register for the workshop to attend?

Yes.  Due to 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 meeting begin and end

The first session will begin at 9 a.m. on Aug. 1, and the final session will end no later than 4:30 p.m. on Aug. 2.
