Indirect Costs on Awards

FFAR allows indirect costs up to 10 percent of the total award funds, including match.  Please note this is not an indirect cost rate applied to total modified direct costs but instead an overall allotment from the award to be used for indirect costs by the institution. For example, for a grant totaling $100,000 (FFAR and institutional match) up to $10,000 can be used for indirect costs and the remaining $90,000 can be applied toward programmatic expenses.  FFAR, an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit, is not a federal agency and therefore a negotiated federal indirect cost percentage will not apply.
