Section 1: Calculate the number of FTEs

Calculate the number of Full-Time Equivalents (FTEs) your organization employs for the purposes of the grant.
To count W-2 employees, please find the number of W-2 employees reported on IRS 941 or RI TX-17 (federal or state tax forms) from Q1 or Q2 of 2020. Please retain this TX-17 or 941 form (you may be asked to provide this during the application process).
Please note that when you count independent contractors on this form, you are attesting that the contractor worked a minimum of 15 or 35 hours per week directly for the organization during Q1 or Q2 of 2020. Contractors performing work that is not part of the organization's operations do NOT count. Please retain 1099s for each independent contractor listed here (you may be asked to provide these).
