Grantee Training

IDHS Grantees should refer to the training information available on the Grant Accountability and Transparency Act (GATA) Website,

Click on their section for "Webinars" for most of the training, but other sections provide useful information. 

Under "CSFA"you will find the entrance to the Catalog of State Financial Assistance, where information about all the grants offered through the State of Illinois are listed.  The GATA "Resource Library" also has additional information about various subjects related to GATA, its processes, training handouts, and links to additional websites with information.

GATA Webinars

GATA's webinars also include downloadable training materials that are very helpful in understanding the federal and state requirements, what each topical area means and why it is important.  The information is useful for all providers who have grants, and should be viewed by both their fiscal and programmatic staff.  The topics include, but are not limited to:

  • GATA pre-award phase
  • Roles and Responsibilities
  • Budget training
  • Applying Indirect Cost Rates to the Budget
  • Using the CroweHorwath CARS Indirect Cost System

Grantees may want to view these webinars multiple times as the subject matter may be new to some people. 

IDHS Budget Training

IDHS is preparing training that will assist providers in using the budget section of the CSA (Community Service Agreement) system., as all grantee budgets will need to be submitted via this system.  Please look for future information on this training.
