How Do I Know Which Budget Format to Use?

First, you need to check the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).  If the budget format is not mentioned in the FOA, then you need to review the SF424 (R&R) Application Guide’s Section 4.6 “Selecting the Appropriate Budget Component” (p. I-73).  Factors  to consider in selecting the appropriate budget component include:  

  • activity code
  • application’s annual direct costs
  • whether the applicant organization is domestic or foreign.  

If you need further clarification, then contact the appropriate financial/grants management staff listed in Section VII of the FOA.
