    Default afg question

    Happy fourth to everyone. Im trying to put the finishing touches on a AFG grant. Is it better to type out numbers and figures or just use numerics? For example, do I write one thousand or 1000? Not sure if numerics are picked up easier by the committee reading the grants.

    I use numbers where appropritae especially large numbers. It's easier to read and saves on character count. Writing out one thousand takes 12 characters where 1000 is 4 or 5 if you add in the comma.

    Thank you. One more question, how far can the definition of sleeping quarters be stretched? What is considered to be sleeping quarters?

    I haven't seen a true definition of sleeping quarters. What I would consider is a room(s) with bed(s) in them.

    I have a question that has been answered lots of times, but I am too busy to look it up.............
    Is there a place in the application to put more money than the 5% cost share? I know you need to place it in the narrative, but I couldnt remember if there is another spot or not.

    Since the computer determines your share, there is no way to increase that % in the budget area. The easiest way is to request the funding you need and explain in the narrative that the department is asking for less as it is picking up a larger share of the overall project.
