    Allowable costs include:
    -Compensation for investigators
    -Professional and technical assistance
    -Research supplies and materials
    -Costs of computer time

    Non-allowable costs include:
    -Purchase or maintenance of durable equipment including but not limited to computer, laboratory or office equipment
    -Expenses related to tuition, textbooks, or conference attendance
    -Private garden development
    -Travel to and/or from research site(s)

    Applications which include indirect costs will not be considered by the committee. While it is not anticipated that a HSA Research Grant will completely fund a project, there should be no duplication or overlap of funding for specific budget items.
