Sample of Construction of a New Facility Budget Justification

Organization Name: Family Medical Center (FMC)

Project Type: Construction of a New Facility

Project Name: FMC New Facility

Total ARP-Capital Funding Request = $2,000,000

Total Project Cost = $8,302,100

Family Medical Center’s proposed ARP-Capital project will construct a new 3-story building on an existing site. The building will provide examination rooms, a waiting area, records rooms, patient services, provider offices, a special purpose room, restrooms, healthcare support function areas, communications, and mechanical spaces. The building will comply with all accessibility requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act and local building codes. A FMC sign will be installed at the entrance of the facility, and moveable medical and office equipment will be purchased. The resulting facility will result in a larger and better organized facility, well-suited to deliver services to the patient population.

The total FMC project cost is $8,302,100. This application requests $2,000,000 to support the total construction and equipment cost. The balance of $6,302,100 will be using a loan backed by the loan guarantee program through HRSA. Should the loan guarantee program application not be approved, we will use $3,500,000 of program income. In addition, we will use venture capital financing from local investors for the $2,802,100, in which we have already received letters of support.

The project is anticipated to begin in within 30 days of award and completed and occupied by August 2024.
