Roundtable – Leaving Money on the Table: The Challenge of Unspent Federal Grants

Marzo 7, 2017 | 8:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Washington, DC United States

Free, offered in inglés

The goal of this roundtable is to convene a cross-section of leaders from the public and private sector to explore the challenges of unspent federal grants in the context of the intergovernmental transfers system in the United States. In a 2015 report, the Government Accountability Office called attention to this problem in fiscally distressed municipalities and in a more recent report estimated that almost one billion dollars in federal grants are currently unspent. We seek to raise awareness of the problem and catalyze solutions-oriented conversations across leaders from all levels of government, the private sector, and non-profit sector stakeholders who work with municipalities.
