Federal Grant Readiness Assessment for Nonprofit Organizations (.pdf). Our tool measures a nonprofit organization’s readiness to apply for, and manage, federal grants by looking at 24 indicators of organizational maturity across four major domains: governance; organizational capacity; policies, systems and controls; and external environment. The 24 indicators are scored using a five-point scale: Exceptional (5), Very Good (4), Satisfactory (3), Developing (2), and Beginning (1).

Federal Grant Management Assessment for Non-Federal Organizations (.pdf form). A thorough examination of 110 standards to help non-federal organizations (e.g., local governments, LEA's, Indian Tribal Governments and nonprofit organizations) determine if their existing policies, procedures and management systems are aligned with federal grant management requirements under the Uniform Guidance. We recommend you also download: 2 CFR Part 200, Uniform Guidance (.pdf).
