    Award Details

    Funding for the project shall not exceed 100% of eligible expenditures. This includes federal, provincial, territorial and municipal assistance for the same purpose. 

    Eligible expenditures are those considered necessary to support the purpose of the project and are costs incurred after the signature of the agreement. There are two types of eligible expenditures:

    • direct delivery expenditures: expenses related to the implementation of the project and easily traced to specific activities
    • administrative expenditures: expenses related to an organizations ability to administer and support project activities, in other words, these expenditures are a necessary part of an organization's operations as part of the delivery of a project

    If organizations list direct delivery expenditures under administrative expenditures, or vice versa, the amounts requested under both types could automatically be cut. Therefore, ensure that descriptions are clear and detailed enough to avoid confusion.

    The Department reserves the right to make the final determination on the value of funding and to exclude expenditures that are ineligible, unnecessary or outside the scope of the project.
