Chair: Anirudh Sailesh
The UA Finance Board is responsible for allocating approximately $300,000 each year to the campus’s many student groups that mainly serve undergraduate students. The Chair of the Finance Board must work to manage a committee responsible for soliciting and reviewing applications from these groups, including meetings with the groups to discuss their applications. Further, the Chair will work with the UA Treasurer to present the Board’s allocation decisions to Council for final review.

Please check what cycle it is on before submitting. Also note that applications need not be emailed to the board, as online submission is all that is required. The deadline for Winter (Jan-Mar) 2014 appeals is December 15, 2013 at 11:59PM EDT.
Each group must have at least the President or Treasurer attend both the Finboard Training and the SAO Training to be eligible to apply for funding. The training presentation is also available below.

During Office Hours, members of Finboard will be available to answer any questions you might have.

If the times listed don't work, email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to meet.
Current Regular Allocations
The regular allocations for the Winter 2014 cycle have been posted. The receipt deadline for the Fall Cycle is December 31, 2013, and for the Winter Cycle is March 31, 2014.
Current MEF Allocations
The MEF allocations for the Fall (July-December) 2013 cycle have been posted. The receipt deadline for the Fall Cycle is December 31, 2013. For MEF, charge your expenses against your group's Main Account instead of your Funding Account. Your group will only get your MEF grant after the event, if you do the following. If you want your group's MEF grant, submit a short post-event report with an explanation of how the event went and a breakdown of your expenses to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. If your group needs to have your Main Account go negative before you receive your MEF grant, that should be fine; talk with Colin Codner in the SAO to let him know.
