GRANTS GAM Admin Reqs

How do I combine state and federal grant funds?

Coordinating federal and state requirements can be challenging and communications with both the federal and state grant program managers is recommended.  Be sure to detail the amount, source, and match requirements of each fund applied to the project.  When making payment on a contract with funds from multiple grant sources or fiscal years, note the amount from each grant or fiscal year on a voucher form or attachment and issue one check, noting the amount from each grant or fiscal year. 

Can I use state funds to repair previously installed conservation practices that have been damaged or removed? 

Depends on the grant program or funding source, as well as if the practice met its effective life, the reason(s) the practice was damaged or removed, and if the proposed replacement provides equivalent benefits.  Consult your Board Conservationist for more information. 

Do I need to issue a 1099? 

For financial assistance that is a reimbursement for expenses, a 1099 form is generally not needed.  For incentive payments the form may be needed.  Consult the IRS Publication 225 or your tax advisor for additional information.

Who is eligible for BWSR grants?  General parameters and eligibility are set by the grant program appropriation and associated policies.  Performance on prior BWSR grants may affect eligibility.  Consult your Board Conservationist for more information.
