Intro to Financial Reporting to CPB (for AFR and FSR filers)

This webinar provides a basic overview of the Annual Financial Report (AFR) that most CPB grantees must file in order to be in compliance with certain provisions of the Community Service Grant (CSG) program.

This training session is designed for individuals who have no prior experience completing an AFR or FSR. CPB staff will guide you through a brief discussion on the reasons for financial reporting to CPB and the essential role non-Federal Financial Support (NFFS) plays in CSG calculations.

This is the principal reason for submitting an Annual Financial Report (AFR) to CPB. This webinar will explain the concept of NFFS. CPB staff will define NFFS and provide simple methods for determining the NFFS eligibility of direct and in-kind revenue. Highly recommend for AFR filers regardless of experience level.
