  6. On Schedule #6 do I enter the amounts I used for the CCI.A? In the “Total budgeted Cost” column do I use from the CCI.A “Total eligible special construction project amount”? In the “Pre-Award Cost” column do I use from the CCI.A “Total State Matching fund request”?
  7. On Schedule #8 do I enter the same amounts as above in the grey area for “b.” and in the Description of Services and Purpose do you want the name of the company doing the special construction? 
     

What is needed on the form?

  • Schedule 1 – only need the CDN do not need their county name.
  • Schedule 4 -- No one fills out Schedule 4 unless they have been awarded this grant and they need to make a change.  For example, if their state match changes, they will need to submit an amendment to correct it.
  • Schedule 5 – No one needs to add anything to this sections.  The required data has been pre-populated with what is needed.
  • Schedule 8 – You are only allowed to put expenditures on the last two lines on the schedule.
     

On Page 1 in Part 1 what do I enter for Vendor ID #?
The Vendor ID is the school district/charter school TAX ID Number.
 

On Page 2 in Part 3 do I remove the X in Amended for everything even though two were all ready there? I think I should place an X for Schedule 1, 2, 5,6, 8. We do not have shared service.
Do not remove any of the X’s already populated. These are to show required schedules that must be submitted with New or Amended applications.
 

Should I include Schedule #3 pages 5 and 6? Of course, I do not include Schedule #4 page 7 and 8?
If you are not part of a shared service arrangement (Consortium), Schedule 3 is not required.   Correct, Schedule 4 is not required at this time.
 

Do I need to add to the brief overview pre- entered for Schedule #5?
Schedule 5 has been completed for the grantees.  There is no need to add any additional information.
 

On Schedule #6 do I enter the amounts I used for the CCI.A? In the “Total budgeted Cost” column do I use from the CCI.A “Total eligible special construction project amount”? In the “Pre-Award Cost” column do I use from the CCI.A “Total State Matching fund request”?
Enter only the amount of the State Match under Program Costs and Total Budgeted Costs columns.  Pre-Award should only be indicated if the project has already started or been completed.
 

On Schedule #8 do I enter the same amounts as above in the grey area for “b.” and in the Description of Services and Purpose do you want the name of the company doing the special construction?
The grayed out area should not have any information.  It is grayed out because this is not applicable for the grant.  Only enter the amount of the State Match on line c and the Grand Total line.  Again, Pre-Award should only be indicated if the project has already started or been completed.
