    Indirect Costs for Federal Funds (CDBG, ESG)

    Grantees with a federally-approved indirect cost rate should submit documentation of the approved rate to MOHCD.

    For grantees without a federally-approved indirect cost rate, the maximum allowed indirect cost rate for Federal Funds (CDBG, ESG) is 10% of Modified Total Direct Costs (MTDC). MTDC excludes:


  • Rent
  • Capital expenditures
  • Charges for patient care
  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Scholarships and fellowships
  • Participant support costs -- direct costs for items such as stipends or subsistence allowances, travel allowances, and registration fees paid to or on behalf of participants or trainees (but not employees) in connection with conferences, or training projects
  • Sub-award (or subcontract to other nonprofits) amounts in excess of $25,000
  • The first two items (Equipment and Rent) on the spreadsheet are separate line items in the GMS budget, while 3-8 will be included within line items such as Other, Travel or Contractual Services.

    To calculate the MTDC, the excluded costs will be subtracted from the total direct costs, and then 10% of that modified amount will be allowed for indirect costs.  MOHCD provides a spreadsheet tool, the MTDC Calculator, for calculating your allowable indirect cost based on MTDC. 


These programs shall be executed within a nine-month period extending from October 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017.

The RFP is now available electronically on this page of MOHCD's website or for pickup at 1 South Van Ness Avenue, 5th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103. Alternative formats for persons with disabilities will be available upon request to MOHCD's ADA Coordinator, Eugene Flannery at 415-701-5598 or
