"The FOUR W's of Grants & Cooperative Agreements Series" has 3 sessions. Please see below for more information and to register for each session.

SESSION 1 | The "Who and What"


In this session, Capital Edge and Sheppard Mullin will delve into the details of the opportunities available, the awarding agencies (The Who), and details as to what these opportunities represent as well as diving into “What” you need to be aware of when pursuing these opportunities. While the opportunities are abundant, the compliance requirements are intricate. Together we will attempt to “de-mystify” the requirements and identify the key opportunities and associated requirements that the contractor and non-profit communities need to be aware of.

  • Discover what the Major Grant and Cooperative Agreement opportunities are and learn about who the funding agencies are
  • Understand the advantages that grants and cooperative agreements can provide to organizations
  • Identify the compliance requirements and complexities surrounding the funding opportunities

SESSION 2 | The "When and Where"


In this session, our Partners from McCallister and Quinn (M&Q) will join us to help the attendees understand WHEN these opportunities are available, WHERE you and your organization can find them, and HOW to pursue them. M&Q’s experts are adept at securing Federal funding opportunities for both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. This session will dive into all the pre-award activities necessary to support a successful pursuit while avoiding any challenges along the way.
