  • An original invoice from the project sponsor or public agency;
  • Copies of paid contractor invoices and canceled checks;
  • Public agency's Federal Identification Number;
  • State and federal project numbers;
  • Total actual costs (to date);
  • Total previously billed;
  • Reimbursement received;
  • Amount of Enhancement award remaining;
  • Bid tabulation (with the first invoice);
  • To whom to make the check payable;
  • Documentation of payment of matching activities; and
  • Documentation of force account hours worked may be done by payroll summary.

Activities Not Eligible for Reimbursement
