Important Considerations All of the My AmeriCorps tutorials and webinars focus on the functionality of the system rather than grant requirements or program policies. The My AmeriCorps system does not include comprehensive compliance checks. We recommend that programs set their own policies around system use and monitor usage for compliance. However, we suggest that programs give some thought to how they assign roles and access so that they are comfortable with the level of authority they are giving their users. If they have questions they should contact their Program Director or Program Officer. eGrants Coaching Unit 4
