JFC Budget Process

JFC Budgeting Process

All student government organizations that recognized before the end of the fall semester of each academic year are eligible to apply for JFC Funding. JFC budgeting happens via TartanConnect - please make sure your organization has a TartanConnect page. The steps for applying for a budget are listed below.

The JFC determines what items to cut from budgets based on the JFC Metrics, which are reviewed and published annually. Please refer to the FY25 Metrics for FY25 Budgeting.

Fiscal Year 2024-2025 (FY25)

This year's Joint Funding Committee (JFC) is responsible for allocating funds to organizations for Fiscal Year 25 (Fall 2024 - Spring 2025). For mid-year funding, please refer to the Common Funding Application for other sources of funding.
