- protects the legal rights and interests of the
applicant organization; and
- commits the application organization to fulfill obligations of HRSA grant.
The signature of the authorized representative forms a legal contract between the applicant organization and the
grantor agency, HRSA. By signing documents on behalf of the organization, the authorizing official binds the applicant
organization to perform within the terms of the grant agreement, common assurances and certifications, administrative
requirements, and programmatic requirements.
