Granting of Funds
Your completion of this grant application does not guarantee that the IURC shall award grant funds. Should the IURC provide a grant award, it will do so in writing. The IURC shall make every attempt to respond to application requests within thirty days.
Applicants shall be required to enter into a fully executed Grant agreement prior to the provision of Underground Plant Protection Account funds. A sample Grant agreement is available here.
Please note that due to state procurement rules, a grant agreement is not necessary for grants of $5,000 or less. However, the IURC still requires a completed and approved grant application.
In order to be able to pay a grant or contract, the requestor must be entered into the State of Indiana payment system. This will require a properly completed W-9 and Direct Deposit Form. These forms can be found below.
