Federal Grant Development: Standard Federal Budget Forms



Standard Federal Budget Forms
Session 8 of the Federal Grant Development Series

Many foundation grants allow you to provide your project budget in your own format, but not federal grant agencies. All federal agencies have their own form which must be used to convey the costs associated with the program, both the cost requested and any matching funds or in-kind funds which may also be part of the program budget. This session will discuss the most common budget categories required by almost of the federal agencies so agencies can begin discussing these categories early in their proposal development. In addition, this session will discuss the most effective ways to fill out these forms and the most common errors made with each type of form so you don’t have an error which prevents your application from being submitted at the last minute.

Federal Grant Development Training Series

Most people consider federal grant training to be a more advanced form of grant writing and management. We at Assel Grant Services do a lot of work with federal grants and we believe that federal grants share a lot of characteristics with significant federal grants. That said, there are a lot of nuances unique to federal grants to learn. This professional development series is designed to help nonprofit professionals who have never written a federal grant be as prepared to step through the federal grant pre-award and post-award process for the first time with confidence.

These sessions are designed to support nonprofit professionals before and during their first federal grant. If you don’t tune in before your first opportunity comes out, this series can be managed during a typical six to eight-week federal grant funding cycle.
