Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP
Nationally recognized for experience in Head Start, FTLF's attorneys provide direct legal representation as well as extensive training on a wide variety of topics, including: programmatic monitoring under the Aligned Monitoring System; fiscal management and federal grant administration; Head Start human resources requirements; confidentiality and privacy issues; ERSEA practices; governance issues; and other grant and compliance-related matters that arise in day-to-day operations.
Managing a federal-funded program as complex as Head Start is difficult, with many regulatory compliance issues to take into account. We work to help organizations navigate the rules that apply and how to allocate costs between and amongst multiple funding streams, to the satisfaction of federal funders and auditors. We also encourage Head Start programs to proactively prepare themselves in understanding and developing systems, policies, and procedures to stay in compliance through our training program.
