F04: Does EPA have a limit on indirect costs that can be charged?

While there is no “limit”, per se, indirect cost rates must be negotiated with the cognizant federal funding agency in accordance with the procedures in OMB Circular A-122, “Cost Principles for Non-Profit Organizations”. 
As specified in the Request for Applications, section IV.B.1.i:
“You must submit a copy of your organization‘s Indirect Cost Rate Agreement as part of the application package if your proposed project budget includes indirect costs.”
