Be prepared for grant opportunities! The Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA) provides uniform guidance for all State of Illinois grant programs. All grant applicants and grantees must comply with GATA grant requirements, which includes the following steps *before* receiving a grant award:
- pre-qualification on the GATA Grantee Portal (must be completed before an entity can submit a grant application to the State of Illinois)
- completion of two risk assessments (must be completed at any time before the issuance of a state award): fiscal and administrative – Internal Controls Questionnaire (ICQ) and Programmatic Risk Assessment (PRAQ)
Each session (presented by Don Elmore, Director of the Illinois Small Business Development Center at Champaign County EDC) will provide detailed information on all of the steps required as part of the GATA process + you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions in the chat box, which will be addressed at the end of the presentation, moderated by a member of our team.
