About the event


Learn how you should determine and recover the “indirect costs” of providing services for the state or federal government.


This workshop will include:

  • A review of revisions to federal “cost principles” and the rules that govern what constitutes, and how to calculate, “indirect costs” for nonprofits.
  • Explanation of the changes in new Office of Management and Budget uniform guidance on the use of federal funds, and how these federal changes will apply in Maryland to state-funded grants and contracts.
  • Overview of Senate Bill 1045, which requires that nonprofit providers be allowed to charge at least a minimum indirect cost rate of 10%.
  • Hands-on exercises based on your own organization’s activities and finances.


Who Should Attend:

Leaders and finance staff of nonprofits that have or are seeking government grants or contracts.
