The forecast is found in Schedule A, Part II, Section D of your AAC funding agreement. This forecast is based on the information you provided in your application. Providing an accurate forecast for your project, when you apply, is very important.
The amount is based on the forecast in Schedule A, Part II, Section D in your AAC funding agreement
For example, in the chart below, the applicant forecasted a total of $50,000 in cash expenses, and $4,500 of in-kind contributions, for the 2015/2016 fiscal year. In order to fully access the project funding available for the year, the applicant must submit a total of $50,000 in cash expenses, and $4,500 of in-kind contributions, by June 30, 2016. Upon satisfactory demonstration of these costs, the applicant would be eligible for up to $39,172.
The spreadsheet attached to your claim payment is divided into two sections: the claim spreadsheet and the forecast by fiscal year.
Claim Spreadsheet - It provides a summary of expenses submitted for reimbursement according to the budget by expense type found in Schedule A, Part II, Section E of your AAC funding agreement. It includes all the claims for the project, payments, and the remaining funding available.
Forecast by Fiscal Year (April 1 – March 31) - The forecast summarizes the information, by fiscal year, found in Schedule A, Part II, Section D of your AAC funding agreement. It outlines the payments you have received to date, and the GF2 project funding remaining.
For example, in the chart below:
o Claim 1 (fiscal year 2015/16):
the applicant has submitted eligible expenses of $50,000
the forecast for the fiscal year is $54,500
after the GF2 funding percentage is applied, the resulting claim payment is $35,937.50, leaving an unaccessed funding balance of $3,234.38
unaccessed funding is unavailable for reimbursement in future fiscal years
o Claim 2 (fiscal year 2016/17):
the applicant has submitted eligible expenses of $77,500
the forecast for the fiscal year is $75,500
the claim payment is limited to the maximum allowable forecasted GF2 funding amount for the 2016/17 fiscal year ($54,265.63)
no additional claims submissions can be reimbursed during this fiscal year, and the amount of $1,437.50 ($55,703.13 - $54,265.63) will not be reimbursed in future claims
