NTTAP Sample Budget Narrative

The sample line-item budget narrative shown is provided as a broad outline to assist you as you develop your fiscal year (FY) 2023 National Training and Technical Assistance Partner (NTTAP) application. A detailed budget narrative is required to include all items within each category for which funds are requested for each 12-month period (budget year) of the three year period of performance. Year 1 of the budget narrative should be classified into federal and non-federal resources.

In addition, applicants must include a personnel justification table, which includes all personnel to be paid with federal funds. For subsequent years, the budget narrative should display any expected increases or decreases from Year 1 or clearly indicate there will be no substantive changes during the period of performance. See Section 5.1.iv of HRSA’s SF-424 Two-Tier Application Guide (PDF - 690 KB). Object class totals should be consistent with those presented in Section B of the SF-424A.
