Cover Sheet


The Cover Sheet may be completed as the last step in preparing your Project Proposal. It will "roll up" and summarize the entirety of your Project Proposal. In addition, the Cover Sheet will capture Agency/Department information, and Authorized Agent contact information, as required by the grant program.

Please complete the fields that are filled in yellow.

You will need to provide:

  • Your Agency/Department name
  • A valid DUNS Number attributed to your Agency/Department (if your Agency/Department does not have a DUNS Number, or if you do not know your Agency's/Department's DUNS Number, you may apply for a DUNS Number or search for your Agency's/Department's DUNS Number on the DUNS' website)
  • Indicate the Project Proposal type (typically, this response will be "Tulare Operational Area", unless this is an Excess Funds Project Proposal)
  • Your agency's written and adopted Procurement Policy Bid Threshold
  • Presenter(s) Contact Information for the presentation at the Project Proposal Meeting
  • Authorized Agents Contact Information: this indicates to the grant management team who can make financial decision regarding your Agency's/Department's Project Proposal, allocation, or award
  • Signature from your Agency/Department manager
