Keep in mind, INDIRECT COSTS NOTICE – Grantees with a federally negotiated Indirect Cost Rate Agreement may want to recover the Indirect Costs (or a portion of them) that are incurred because of implementing and meeting the goals of their proposal. If this is the case, your organization must identify “Overhead and Administrative Costs” as a line item under “E. Remaining Operating Expenses” in the “Budget - Expenses” section of the final report. Grantees cannot use “Overhead and Administrative Costs” as part of their match. We ask that applicants calculate actual indirect costs associated with the proposal and do not simply use a percentage of their project budget. Please ensure that you are not “double dipping,” i.e., costs must be consistently charged as either indirect or direct costs but may not be double charged or inconsistently charged as both. The final report must identify and document the discrete, specific expenses that fit within this line item.
