What is a Sub-award or Subcontract?
A sub-award, or subcontract refers to funding received by an FBCO from an intermediary organization that received direct Federal funding. Examples include sub-awards made to grassroots nonprofits under programs such as Communities Empowering Youth, the Compassion Capital Fund Demonstration Program, and the Department of Labor’s Workforce Investment Board Intermediary Grants (2004 and 2005). In all of these cases, an intermediary or lead organization (whether a nonprofit agency, state or local government, or other entity) received a competitive Federal award and provided sub-awards to FBCOs.
