These history organizations may request funding for the general operating expenses of the organization which may include expenses directly relating to a specific program. Applicants may request up to 20% of their operating budget. Special care should be taken not to inflate budgets. The intent of the GOS grant is to support day to day operations of the organization.

First time applicants may request up to 50% of the project costs. Subsequent funding requests for the same SP may be up to 20% of the project cost.
