Public, Educational and Governmental Programming and Educational Technology Investment Account (PEGPETIA) Grant Program
Requests for PEGPETIA Grants will be processed and decisions will be issued based on the availability of funds in the PEGPETIA account.
Non Equipment Capital costs should not exceed 10% of the overall grant request.
Capital costs do not include ongoing expenses such as rent, supplies, insurance, maintenance1, salaries, and other like expenses (operating expenses). Capital costs, unlike operating expenses, are typically one-time costs and have a clear start and finish to the activity or project. An example of a qualifying capital cost would be a reasonable cost for a contractor to ship and/or install the necessary equipment requested for a project. A limited training workshop to use the equipment is also permitted as a qualifying non-equipment capital cost.2
1. The Authority will consider allowing reasonable equipment warranties on a case-by-case basis.
2. Capitalized costs should not exceed 10% of the amount approved for equipment, although the Authority will evaluate these costs on a case-by-case basis.
