If the ATLAS funding limit of $50,000 is insufficient to fund all necessary activities, can additional grants, donations or admission fees be used to offset the overage? If yes, should this additional funding – or the need to seek additional funding – be disclosed or detailed in the proposal?
Yes. The proposal should clearly indicate how the total funds available, including but not limited to ATLAS, will be sufficient to complete the project as planned. If the applicant plans to seek additional funds, but does not yet have them in hand, this information may be useful to reviewers in determining the likelihood of near-term completion. Any support for the project beyond ATLAS funding should be included as match if possible, and must be disclosed to the Board of Regents at the contracting stage.
