What should I Care About? CARES Act and Other
Pandemic Response Funding, Perils and Pitfalls
Presented by Edward T. Waters, Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP
and Scott Sheffler, Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP

This session will discuss CARES Act (and additional relief funding, if any), requirements and what is coming next. Specifically, we will discuss experiences post-Recovery Act, common audit findings, how to avoid them and what to expect when the Inspector General audits start.

Learning Objectives:

  • Review key components of the COVID-19 funding landscape against the fundamentals of financial assistance compliance

  • Use examples from COVID-19 funding to illustrate broader compliance points

  • Apply lessons learned from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (“ARRA”) and the audits that came after
