The Consolidated Appropriations Acts of 2018 and 2020 appropriated funds to make payments to states for activities to improve the administration of elections for federal office, including to enhance election technology and make election security improvements. An allowable cost is one that is necessary and reasonable for the proper and efficient performance and administration of the activities funded under the grant. Expenses related to the installation or removal of security equipment which is used to enhance security of elections facilities are an allowable cost as the activity is reasonable to make election security improvements. This includes labor costs as appropriate.
