Rural Violent Crime Reduction Initiative Scratch Budget Worksheet

Publication Date: December 2022

"The National Policing Institute has developed an Excel to act as a worksheet for you to work through your budget prior to entry in the Institute application. The final budget will then need to be entered directly into the application. Each item (personnel, hardware, software, etc.) should be entered separately. If regular time and overtime funding is being requested for an employee, overtime and regular funding should be entered as separate line items since the rate will be different. See the Data Fields tab for a brief description of each field and what should be entered. The Total Cost column and Budget Summary will auto-calculate totals based on information entered into the preceding cells. There is no need to edit these cells. All categories do not have to be included in the application."
