Developing a project budget and appropriate funding request can make or break your proposal. You know what you want to do and how you want to do it. You have measurable goals, a strong evaluation plan and the best collaborators. You have found a sponsor whose funding priorities are in line with your project. What’s left? THE BUDGET. How much do you ask for? What costs can or should you ask for? How much will your project cost? Welcome to Budget Basics! This session will provide an approach to budget development that can be applied to any type of project or proposal. You will also leave with a basic understanding of the terms “Allowable, Allocable, Reasonable, Costshare and the Prudent Person Test.” This session is open to all grantseekers, regardless of grantwriting experience.
