Mileage, Per Diem, and Honorarium Rates

Necessary travel is allowed at a rate not to exceed 50 cents per mile for privately owned automobiles.

Maximum per diem (daily allowance for meals and lodging) may not exceed $100 per day per person.

HN funds cannot contribute to more than $500 per day honorarium (the grantee can pay a higher honorarium if they choose by adding funding from some other source).

Air travel, where necessary, should be figured at economy rates, including a Saturday night stay-over if that lowers the cost.

Per diem and mileage rates may change. Applicants are responsible for knowing the current rates. Staff will adjust per diem and mileage totals downward if figured on rates that exceed HN current rates but will not adjust rates upward.
