*Distribution of Funds

The distribution of grant payments will be based upon a cost reimbursement model. This requires invoices and documentation of costs on a monthly basis to be submitted for approval and payment. As a result, grantees are required to expend local funds upfront and invoice the NN/LM NER for incurred expenses. Invoices and accompanying documentation are to be e-mailed to mary.piorun@umassmed.edu. Refer to the following samples and templates (link forthcoming).
