Indirect Costs

In addition to direct costs, the EPA supports a policy of full reimbursement of indirect costs also known as facilities and administrative (F&A) costs or overhead for most grant programs. Indirect costs are those costs of an institution or organization that are not readily identifiable with a particular project or activity but are necessary to the general operation of the organization and the conduct of its grant activities.
