Before charging rent costs to a project, get prior approval from the grants management officer (GMO).
Grantees must submit a written request for approval to charge rent costs to a project. You must describe in detail how the amount you claim for rent is calculated by including:
- The individual cost items that make up the total cost of the building
- The methodology used to allocate the costs to the programs or activities operated in the building
- Supporting documents
As part of your request, you must answer several questions. Download the Rent Questions Worksheet (DOC | 22.24 KB) for the list of questions and a sample template for calculating depreciation.
