Grant funds may be used for direct project expenses required to implement your project, and may also be used for t-shirts or swag (logos and banner designs provided), food for meetings, substitutes, and youth stipends are allowable if required for the project. Funds may not be used for indirect expenses (overhead), salary, offset of normally budgeted costs, or expenses not related to the program. A budgeting template is provided in our online community to use as part of your planning process. If you have specific questions, please contact us.
