No indirect costs are allowed. A letter from an officer of a GCSAA-affiliated chapter who is also a GCSAA member is required. A single GCSAA affiliated chapter, multiple GCSAA-affiliated chapters working together, turf associations or foundations, golf associations, or any combination of the organizations previously listed must match dollar-for-dollar the funding requested from the EIFG. Organizations may contribute more than $10,000 to a project but the EIFG will only match up to $10,000.
