Management Information and Software Tools For Grant Administrators
Federal grant expenditures are now in excess of 300 Billion dollars per year and growing at a rate of more than 5% per annum. These expenditures provide vital services for the American public and employment for millions of Americans.
There was no single information resource dedicated to grant managers and executives responsible for grant management and oversight. Hence, Grant Community.com was created in November, 2000; the web portal contains the following information about Federal and financial assistance programs:
· Program Descriptions. A summary of the more than 1,400 grant and financial assistance programs
· Federal Financial Assistance Programs: The 1998 Overview of Entitlement Programs ("Green Book") published by the House Ways and Means Committee
· Federal Grant Audits: A listing of major Government Accounting Office audits of Federal programs
· Federal Expenditures By State and County: County Expenditures for more than 30 major financial assistance programs including Medicaid and food stamps

Also, Congress wants agencies to improve grant monitoring and to document the results and benefits for the American people. Grant Community.com believes that electronic grant management systems will provide the following benefits:
