Grants Management: Bringing Insight from the HHS Conference to You

Over 77,000 grants awarded to more than 11,000 recipients—a total exceeding $480 billion in FY 2017 by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)—is significant. As Andrea Brandon, Deputy Assistant Secretary of HHS’ Office of Grants and Acquisition Policy and Accountability (OGAPA), explained at the conference, this makes HHS the largest grant-making agency in the U.S. and globally.

Grants.gov Community Blog subscribers may recall the invitation to attend OGAPA’s 2018 Grants Management Conference on January 9, 2018.
