Federal Grants- General Administration

Most of the Federal grants local education agencies (LEAs) receive as subgrants from the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) come with similar general administrative requirements.  This guide is to assist you with understanding these requirements.  Note:  because most PDE subgrants are for U.S. Department of Education (USDE) grants, requirements cite USDE references.  However PDE also administers grants from other Federal agencies, such as U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).  While the general requirements are often applicable, be sure to verify information.
