Receiving Funding Allocation for Spending Use

Once a FAC allocation award amount has been released to a group, the funding will automatically be distributed through respective departments. Groups are required to "Match" the amount of allocated funds through outside fundraising. Check-ins will be completed at the end of the fall semester to monitor progress towards "Match" amount.
