By | Published On: April 10, 2020


Washington, DC — Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP (FTLF) has developed a new white paper to assist clients and industry partners in better understanding the federal response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This complimentary overview and analysis of key developments addresses recent emergency declarations, congressional action, and administrative grant management relief for federal award recipients. While it does not address every aspect of the complex national response, it provides a foundation to understand the framework to date.

“Grantees must move quickly to remain in compliance with and take full advantage of the swiftly changing federal grant opportunities and rules,” said Ted Waters, the Firm’s Managing Partner. “This document is a roadmap and grantees must stay vigilant as Washington further adjusts to the pandemic’s still-growing pressure on our population and economy.”

A complimentary copy of the FTLF White Paper is available on the FTLF website HERE. For questions, please contact 202.466.8960 or email news@ftlf.com.

FTLF also runs a professional education program for federal grantees. The Firm’s attorneys incorporate the insight gained from real client experiences into the training curriculum, translating complex legal concepts into practical guidance and resources. The firm is rapidly developing new virtual programs to share information with organizations receiving federal grants in order to help them manage grant dollars and ongoing compliance during the COVID-19 national emergency.
