We need more straight shooting Grant management advice like Lucy gives

Lucy aka MyFedTrainer knows her way around grant management rules and regulations. Most people think of grant management as a dry and boring subject, but Lucy’s interview style with leading professionals in the field provide a great balance of knowledge and stories to keep your attention and interest. We need more quality grant podcasts like this one!
