Accessing OCE Funds
You may access your funds at the beginning of, and up to 30 days after, your grant period. Funds may be accessed and used in multiple ways:
- Reimbursement Via Check
- MICA College Store Charge
- MICA Printing Charge
- Purchase Orders
- MICA Van or Bus Rental
- Stipend or honorarium
Please download this document to find instructions for each of the ways to access and use funds. Please note that as the grant recipient, you are responsible for maintaining your project’s budget and you are responsible for any ineligible expenses such as stipends, gift cards, or additional project costs exceeding your grant award amount. It is important that you remain in contact with OCE at firstname.lastname@example.org throughout the process of spending your project funds.
If you have any questions about your grant, please contact OCE at email@example.com.
Please note: Grant recipients should NOT pay any individuals or organizations for services out-of-pocket. Due to potential tax reporting requirements, grant recipients will not be reimbursed for any contractual services paid out-of-pocket. Contractual services must be paid directly by MICA through Purchase Orders to the individual or business and cannot be paid by or reimbursed to a grant recipient.
