Following the Money 101: Reporting Requirements of the CARES Act

This session, part of the Congressional Training Program’s partnership with the Oversight Summit’s virtual briefing series, provides a congressionally focused overview of CARES Act reporting requirements and how to find and use data we already have about how these programs are working.

Building up to our in-person conference next spring, POGO and other good government partners will be hosting ongoing virtual events over the coming months to engage the oversight community, both practitioners and non-practitioners alike.
