Limitations on use of grant funds
Recipients are responsible for project development, design, or technical assistance. This work must be identified and included in the project proposal, schedule, budget, and other available financial or in-kind resources.
Recipients may only use grant funds to cover direct costs related to project implementation or for extraordinary project costs that are not part of routine operations. Recipients cannot use funds to reimburse costs not directly associated with the project, such as regular salaries/benefits of employees for routine operational support, except in the form of a negotiated indirect rate.
Direct costs include:
- Compensation of employees’ time on the project.
- Costs of materials used specifically for the project.
- Costs of services for the project.
