Working with Community Action Agencies (CAAs) on legal matters can sometimes be challenging for outside counsel. The myriad of federal grants that CAAs receive requires compliance with layers of requirements that can make seemingly simple issues more involved and complex. In this two-part webinar series, we pose questions and provide answers to help orient attorneys working with CAAs on some of the key legal requirements that impact the way CAAs operate. Rather than delve deeply into any one issue, we help CAA attorneys spot a variety of CAA legal issues and identify CAPLAW resources that attorneys may refer to when working with CAAs on specific matters. The webinars cover topics such as federal grants vs. contracts, board composition, bylaws provisions, basics of rules governing use of federal funds, cost disallowances, required and recommended contract provisions, mergers and shared services, and more.
