Greatest challenges

GREATEST CHALLENGES

  • Expenditure of funds at a rate that decreases the funds remaining at the end of a fiscal year

  • Getting everyone to understand how carry forward funds are to be used and using them in a timely manner

  • Telling the story of all the activities funded under the Title III grant, much like the story is told regarding the technology activity


Greatest challenges1

GREATEST CHALLENGES

  • Since there is no LAA category related to faculty/staff travel for HBGI grants as there is for HBCU grants, I am concerned about faculty development allowability under the HBGI grants

  • How we account for these expenditures in the APR as all spending has to be reported under an LAA category
