The Cliff Effect: A Spectrum of Risk

February 28, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

While the Office of Head Start (OHS) is continuing to identify and work to avoid a situation where grantees/recipients can’t spend down all of their additional one-time dollars, this session is designed to address a whole different challenge… situations where grantees could face dire consequences tied to losing the extra dollars.

It is anticipated that every agency may face some difficulties in adapting to normal levels of funding, some could face even more dire consequences as a result of:

• Spending dollars on unallowable purchases

• Making fiscal decisions that cannot be explained to auditors, resulting in questioned costs or potential audit findings

Allocating temporary dollars on permanent ongoing expenses, such as raising wages and salaries with temporary dollars, with no viable plan in place to reduce increased levels of compensation when temporary dollars are no longer available

This session is designed to help program leadership anticipate unique challenges their program may encounter and proactively plan to overcome those challenges. The “Good News” is there is still time for many solutions to be put in place if this reality is treated with a sense of urgency.
