    Default excess funds

    need insight about excess funds.....the program guidance is fairly vague about what excess funds can be used for. we have approximately $12000 excess from our grant this year. $5000 can be used for firefighting equipment. what types of things can we use the extra $7000 for in fire prevention and safety? the guidance is not real clear.....

    Start by using the FP & S program guidance as the guide, that will put you on the path of what may be eligible. Then you'll need to develop a proposal--almost as if you're applying for another grant--'cuz you really are.

    i was wondering if the fp&s eligible items were available for request with excess funds, the excess funds line item for the regular afg doesn't state that....

    thanks

    Yes, you request an amendment to spend anything over the $5k mark. As Earl stated it basically has to be an FP app to prove the need to get approval to spend the money. So having an implementation plan is key, not just a list of toys to get.
