Grant Management & Administrative Services
For the grant fiscal years 2007 Supplemental through 2011, the Merchants Exchange has gained direct experience in grant management and administration as the designated Fiduciary Agent and Direct Recipient for the Port Security Grant Program funds for the Columbia-Willamette-Snake River Port Area. The Merchants Exchange is offering our experience in grant management and administration as a service to all grant funding applicants.
Our practices have been proven through the successful application and award to FY-2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 PSGP applicants. Our knowledge and skill in grant management and administration is further evident in our FEMA Region X Financial Monitoring Reports that resulted in zero findings.
