Policy Statement on Direct vs. Indirect Costs
When creating a grant budget, make sure you appropriately classify direct and indirect costs. When spending funds, make sure you do not charge items to a grant that are considered indirect costs.
Allowable and Unallowable Costs
If you are spending federal funds, all expenses must be allowable, allocable, consistent, and reasonable. Click the link below for more information.
Participant Support Costs
If your budget includes participant support costs, those funds should be kept separate from other grant funds, and cannot be re-budgeted without written sponsor approval.
