This is a good example because it:

  • Assigns a cost to each project element
  • Supports the information provided in the Narrative/Project Summary and the Work Plan
  • Does not bundle items into a single or limited number of items, but breaks out the various project elements detailed in the Narrative/Project Summary and Work Plan sections of the application necessary to accomplish the project
  • Includes information on the entire scope of the project with dollar values assigned only to those line items for which funding is requested
