Contracts and Grants

Meet the Contracts and Grants staff at ISU Extension and Outreach

I'm in a County Extension Office.  What is the correct Facilities and Administrative Costs (F&A), or indirect cost rate that should be used when applying for grants?

This template should be used for Fee-for-Service or Revenue generation with customers when necessary.  It is customized for educational programs and presentations.

This template should be used when providing a fee-for-service with a University approved fee rate. This Agreement is provided by the University Legal Counsel and provides legal language for materials transfer and confidentiality. Note that a speaking and educational Program Agreement is also available on the Extension and Finance Contracts and Grants website.

Many sponsors will want strong evidence of a need for funding.  This document might help get you started.
