A cash contribution to an expense consists of funds taken from an organization’s budget which were applied to meet a total cost. (Example: If a staff person was paid $100 in salaries and $50 was reimbursed through HSG, the remaining $50 would be considered to be a cash contribution. However, if a person volunteered their services or donated goods to meet the needs of the project without reimbursement, the value of the goods or services would be an in-kind contribution.
Only expenses which are directly related to the project should be included in Attachment C. Expenses not included in the budget cannot be reimbursed if the project is funded.
All personnel expenses (salary & benefits) must be documented to be considered for reimbursement. Salaries can be documented using timesheets and payroll checks/records. Fringe benefits can be documented using invoices and cancelled checks showing the payment. The documentation for fringe benefits must show that the employee received the benefits and the cost which the employer paid.

Yes, presuming the organization acting as the fiscal agent clearly demonstrated the sections which applied to the now independent organization. Otherwise, the organization should submit the audit/taxes they prepared and submitted to the IRS.
An organization founded on or after 2020 could not have recorded three years of service.
"If you need to submit your attachments using multiple emails, please mark each email in the following manner. ‘Part one of three. Then, part two of three. Then part three of three.” This information will allow us to verify that we have received your entire application and attachments.
Since your fiscal year ends after the application deadline, you will need to submit the FY20 audit document. Also, since the HSG application is for FY22, please submit your operating budget for FY21.
* Please confirm that you only require one prior year operating budget (FY2021).
(Please note that our audits FY period is July 1-June 30 and overlaps the HSG Period of October 1-September 30.)
This is one area where the RFP is very specific. My suggestion is to check the check list for your answers. Please know that the items under “Additional attachments as needed” are also excluded from the page count.
