Administative cost

The administrative costs may not exceed 10 percent of section 319 funding (CWA section 319(h)(12); 40 CFR 35.268).  Administrative costs include salaries, overhead, or indirect costs for services provided and charged against general activities and programs carried out with the grant.  Note: Salary is not included if it's related specifically to implementation, outreach or monitoring necessary for the project.

The costs of enforcement and regulatory activities, education, training, technical assistance, technology  transfer and demonstration projects are not subject to the 10 percent limitation. This requirement does not apply to a PPG that includes section 319 funds (40 CFR 35.134(c)).
