What type of line items are appropriate for my proposal budget narrative? Are indirect costs allowed?

Your budget narrative should be unique to your own proposal, and particular line items are not required or expected. Examples of types of budgetary items seen in previously awarded grants include (but are not limited to): space rental, travel costs, marketing and communications, consultation fees, food/refreshments, materials/supplies, books, certificates of participation, AV needs, and honoraria.


Appropriate budget items include both direct and indirect costs - we just ask that indirect costs be identified and estimated as closely as possible. There is no percentage requirement for direct or indirect costs.


If including honoraria for the facilitator or others involved, please note that it should not exceed $1,000 each from the budgeted grant funds. Matching funds can be used if needed to make up for any overages of honoraria, but our hope is that the funds can be dispersed beyond just compensation.
