Hubble Space Telescope Call for Proposals for Cycle 22 > Chapter 12: Grant Funding and Budget Submissions > 12.4 Allowable Costs

12.4 Allowable Costs
Support may be requested for the acquisition, calibration, analysis, and publication of HST data, and related costs. Budget proposals are reviewed based on what is reasonable and allowable to complete the scientific goals of the program. Costs of the following types may be acceptable, if they conform to the GGP (see Section 12.1):
For-profit organizations should note that profit and cost of money are not allowable costs.
Preparatory funding may be requested if necessary to prepare for the receipt of HST data. Proposers may request that up to 25% of the total approved amount for their programs be awarded prior to the start of the Cycle 22 observing schedule. However, such funding is not available until both the STScI Directorate and NASA approve the program’s budget. Preparatory funds are part of the overall funding allocated for the program, and are not additional funds. Pre-award expenditures may be incurred, but at the risk of the investigator. All funding (including preparatory funds) is subject to the availability of funds from NASA.
