This funding will reimburse at the GSA rates for food per diem, mileage, and lodging if needed (with lodging receipt required). This reimbursement will be made via EFT so banking information is required.

Please note: mileage is reimbursed for the shortest direct route traveled in accordance with 41 CFR 301-2.4. (Airfare will not be reimbursed).

All request forms are due by the 10th of each month for travel that occurred the month prior.
