Looking for Used Fire Fighting Equipment?  The FEPP and FPP Programs May Save You Money

Posted by Sherie Sanders on Nov 30, 2016 4:13:00 AM

There are two government programs, the Federal Excess Personal Property (FEPP) and The Firefighter Property Program (FPP) that allow surplus materials from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) to be repurposed into firefighting equipment for state and local use. In both cases, the property passes through State Foresters who then distribute it to local agencies. Between both programs, over $150 million in former DOD inventory has been distributed between 2008 and 2012. Since the cost to acquire and refurbish a military truck is a few thousand dollars, but the cost of a brand new fire engine could run $150,000 or more, used equipment from these programs have the potential to save local fire departments considerable amounts of money.

Subrecipient vs. Subcontractor vs. Subaward designation: Confusion between the “Subs”

Posted by Rachel Werner on Nov 28, 2016 4:10:00 AM

I was recently speaking with a client that received two federal grants from two different federal agencies. They began working on the contractor agreements for their vendors, and realized that each agency interpreted 2 CFR 200 (Uniform Grant Guidance or UGG) subaward vs. subrecipient vs. subcontractor terminology very differently. This not only is confusing from an operations standpoint, but can have immediate implications from a transparency perspective if the application is not standardized across the board. Let’s start out with some definitions.

Posted by Sherie Sanders on Nov 16, 2016 5:13:45 AM

Did you know that  smiling can reduce stress and social anxiety, strengthen your immune system and improve the mood of those around you? There are even studies that suggest when we smile we appear to be more approachable, trustworthy and attractive. An important social asset, smiling should never be taken for granted. Sadly, tooth decay is still the most common childhood disease and hundreds of thousands of children are not able to visit the dentist because of their parents' inability to pay. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry via its Healthy Smiles Healthy Children Grant has set out to change that to ensure a future full of smiles.

Capacity Building for Local Government - Resources from the Building Neighborhood Capacity Program

Posted by Sherie Sanders on Nov 14, 2016 4:16:00 AM

Capacity building! Most of us know the general meaning even if its nuances have yet to completely crystallize in our minds. In broad terms, it means enabling an entity to help itself. In the nonprofit arena, it is related to organizational effectiveness and has become an increasingly popular area for funding. There is also a federal program dedicated specifically to local communities. The Building Neighborhood Capacity Program (BNCP) is dedicated to providing the combination of knowledge, skills, relationships, processes and resources that residents, local organizations and cross-sector partners need to work together to achieve their goals.
