You may charge the cost of a subscription to this platform against your federal award? Within Section 200.454(b), the uniform grants guidance contains an allowable item of cost for memberships, subscriptions and professional activity costs. Of course, you’ll want to verify that there is no specific restriction in the approved grant budget or the award documents with your program director, finance officer or granting agency, but there is an excellent chance that your federal award can be used to pay for a subscription.
