Ideally, projects should have no existing funding.
Funding is contingent on a full review of the research budget. Budgets should include reasonable costs within the parameters below:
Projects will receive funding based on project-related milestones, including receipt of scheduled progress reports. Additional information related to the timing of payments will be outlined in the research agreement.
Funding provided through the CF RIA program may be subject to reporting under applicable transparency laws and codes.
A final financial report is due 60 days after the end of the funding period reconciling the proposed budget with the actual expenditures. In the event that unexpended funds remain at the end of the funding period, these funds must be returned to the CF RIA program.
