FY18 Ag Grant Budgets Are Active & Due Sept 30

Friday, September 01, 2017

*Sent to D5 Ag Teachers and Administrators

Hi Ag Teachers & Administrators:

Your school's FY18 Ag Grant Budget  can now be completed in the Illinois State Board of Education(ISBE) IWAS system.   You will need your ELIS account username and password to login to this site.  A few changes have occured with the IWAS system since last year.  These changes can be viewed at this link.  If you submit the grant by September 30, 2017, your school will secure a July 1, 2017 start date for the grant, meaning that allowable expenses would be eligible for the grant as early as July 1st.   Grant submissions after September 30th would have a new start date

After IWAS login, then click on System Listing on the left side, then click on Agricultural Education Incentive grant.  The below wording will show at the top of the page. Click yes to create a 2017-18 Ag Grant Budget form.
This Program Allows you to have multiple projects.
Would you like to create a new project for the current year?Yes

View the top header row, start from the far left tab(Applicant Information) and keep clicking each tab to the right to complete.

Attached is a one page summary of function codes, object codes, and examples of allowable expenditures.  10% of the grant can be used for consumable materials(ink cartridges, potting soil, welding rods, etc.).

FY17 Ag Grant Allocations are starting to flow electronically from the Comptroller's Office.  Edwards County in Albion received their funding this month with a voucher date of 12/1/2016.

If you have questions, please let me know and I can assist you through the process.  Thank you.
