This is an example of a completed work plan.

objective may have several tasks and performance
measures.
30
Click the Budget tab. You must have at least one
participant and a completed Work Plan before you
can enter a budget. Click on Create new Budget
Version for Participant.
31
REMINDER 25 of SHSP, SLETPP, UASI, MMRS, and
SLHD funds must be used to Strengthen
Preparedness Planning, which can be done via
planning, training, and/or exercise activities.
Each budget item is inputted separately. Choose
the category of the budget item you are entering
from the pick-list box. As you can see there are
nine budget categories.
32
USE WHOLE DOLLARS
NOTE If you are including personnel and/or
organizational costs in your budget, please be
sure to consult the appropriate 2009 Program
Guidance document for additional details, as
allowable costs in both of these areas have
changed greatly this year.
Mandatory fields for a budget item are
Description, Number, Unit Cost and Justification.
If entering an Equipment item, an AEL Number is
also mandatory (a link to the Responder Knowledge
Base is provided). When finished with the item
click Save.
33
Once you have saved a budget item, the screen
will refresh and the Add Funding Allocation for
this Budget item icon will appear. Click Add
Funding Allocation for this Budget item. Screen
will advance to the Funding Allocation Tab. You
must enter a budget item before you can enter
funding allocation data.
34
Click on the pick-list box to choose a GT Work
Plan Code that best describes the budgeted item.
Only the GT Work Plan Codes that you selected on
the Work Plan tab will appear. Click Add G and T
Workplan
35
Click on the pick-list box to choose a National
Priority that best describes the budgeted item.
Click Add National Priority
36
Click on the pick-list box to choose the State
Strategy Goal that the budgeted item supports.
Click Add Project Priority PLEASE NOTE We
strongly encourage that you utilize the FY09
Priority Project List as you develop your
spending plans for 2009 grant funds. However, in
your E-Grants application you do not need to
select a priority project from the drop-down
list. Instead, please select the appropriate
State Strategy Goal. REMINDER All 2009 funds
must be spent in support of one or more
Investment Justifications.
37
Now you select a Spending Subcategory/Solution
Area. Only the Solution Areas that match the
Funding Program (SHSP, SLETPP, MMRS, etc.) will
be listed. Select the Solution Area (Planning,
Organization, Equipment, Training, Exercises or
MA) that appears in the red or blue letters.
38

Once you select a category, the screen will
refresh and the selected item will appear in red.
Items related to the selected category will
appear in the pick-list box. Select the
appropriate Subcategory.
39

After selecting the subcategory, enter the dollar
amount being allocated to that Subcategory
and click Add Spending Subcategory. You may
select multiple Solution Areas/Subcategories per
budget item, but only one GT Work Plan Code,
National Priority, and Priority Project per
budget item.
40
The total dollar amount of the subcategory MUST
equal the budget item. Example above shows
selecting two subcategories (Planning and
Training) totaling 4.00. Budgeted item was
5.00. Notice there is still a field Enter a
value of 1.00 or less.

41

Notice in the example above that the Spending
Subcategories match the budgeted item. There is
no longer a field Enter a value of or less.
42

Now enter the Spending Discipline for each
Solution Area (Planning, Organization, Equipment,
Training, Exercise and MA) that you choose
previously. Select the Solution Area (POETE)
that appears in red or blue lettering.
43
Once you select a category, the screen will
refresh and the selected item will appear in red.
Items related to the selected category will
appear in the pick-list box. Select the
appropriate Discipline.
44
After selecting the Discipline, enter the dollar
amount being allocated to that Discipline and
click on Add Spending Discipline. You must
select the same Solution Areas (Planning,
Organization, Equipment, Training, Exercise and
MA) for both the Spending Subcategory and
Spending Discipline. (See next slide)
45
In regards to the above example, you must choose
an Exercise Discipline for 1.00 Training
Discipline for 2.00 and Planning Discipline for
2.00. You may choose more than one Discipline
per Solution Area (i.e. under Planning Discipline
you may choose Planning-Fire Service for 2.00 or
Planning-Fire Service for 1.00 and Planning-Law
Enforcement for 1.00. Both total 2.00 which is
the amount allocated to the Planning Subcategory).
46
In regards to the above example, you allocated
2.00 for Training Subcategory, but for Training
Discipline you chose 3.00 so you received an
error message when you clicked Finished with this
Item.
47
This is how the Funding Discipline tab should
look when everything matches. Click on Finished
with this item. The screen will refresh back to
the budget tab to add additional budget items.
You need to complete the Budget and Funding
Allocations Tabs for each budget item.
48
Your completed budget will look like this.

Use the arrows to advance to different pages.
Click the Question tab. There are multiple
questions you need to answer. Click on each
question, enter your answer and click on Save.
50

is to certify the Federal Assurances. Click the
Acceptance Tab. Click Assurance 1.
51
The screen will refresh with the Assurance. Click
the Certify button on the bottom of the screen
after you have finished reading the information
thoroughly. The screen will refresh again and
your name will appear in the Certified by box
with the current date.
52
