1. When referring to committed funding sources from city, county, state or federal funds, is that only regarding any funding received from these entities?
Yes, it should only be completed if funds have been received from one of those entities specifically for the proposed program/project, otherwise leave blank, or mark as N/A. Committed funds stated in the Executive Summary should match the amounts noted in Grant Certification Form-3.
2. The Executive Summary asks for a dollar amount of "Estimate of Pending Leveraged Funds Historically Received for Proposed Program/Project". Are "pending" funds what we know we are getting or requested funding?
Pending funds are those funds that have been requested (but not yet committed) or funds the program/project has historically received, but that are not yet officially committed.
3. We are now on a regular cycle for a Foundation Award, meaning they do not send grant letters each year and we've been approved for funds for next year from another funding source and we have not received their letter either. Should we list those funds as "committed" or should we still show them as pending?
Any funding listed in the "committed" field must be documented in the attachments with the application. If you can obtain written confirmation in an email or letter from that entity showing they have approved an award specifically for the proposed program/project that will suffice for documentation. Otherwise, include those amounts in the "pending" field.
4. The Executive Summary asks for project costs. What costs should be included?
Applicants should include the TOTAL cost for the proposed program/project on the both Executive Summary and on the Budget Table(s). If an agency uses their general fund budget for the program/project delivery cost, those costs should be included in the Executive Summary as Leverage under "Total Committed Leverage Funding for PY18" and on the Budget Table(s) in Column B – Other Funding Sources (Leverage).
