Looking to learn more about federal grants, fiscal compliance, and DPI's all-in-one federal grants management portal WISEgrants?
Join us for The WISEgrants Podcast, where members of the WISEgrants team will provide software and federal grant-related updates, with the last 15 minutes of each podcast dedicated to answering questions from the field (either submitted prior to or asked during the session). The structure of the podcast will be free form with no pre-set agenda with the team focusing on providing up-to-the-minute information to the field.
The podcasts will be scheduled for roughly twice a month, with some variation due to holidays, conference schedules, etc. Upcoming dates are posted below, along with a link to register to access the podcast and receive podcast notifications.
All podcasts will be recorded and will be available for your convenient viewing shortly after the podcast airs.
The WISEgrants team would like to thank the dedicated staff of CESA 4, who have partnered with us to help make this platform for valuable technical assistance available.
