Developing a quality financial assistance workforce continues to be a major management challenge in most agencies. There is a need to better define competencies and provide training for grants specialists, program and project managers, policy advisors, financial analysts, and other job series with grants management responsibilities. This comprehensive Financial Assistance Career Roadmap is intended to serve as an informational resource for Federal organizations to guide the career progression of Financial Assistance Management professionals, independent of job series. COFAR will soon publish an interactive tool that will allow agencies and individuals to use the Career Roadmap’s different elements as building blocks to customize a version that best fits the needs of their Financial Assistance Management Workforce. Federal agencies will be able to create a Career Roadmap that applies to any position with Financial Assistance Management responsibilities in their agency.
