Note:  Historically, fringe rates are negotiated with DHHS each year.  New rates are typically released by March for the next year.  For purposes of budgeting grant applications, please utilize 34% as a projected rate for FY 18.  You may also include an escalation factor of .5% to estimate rates beyond FY18.   Please obtain fringe rates for DH paid from the DH fiscal office.
