Alternate funding requests provide a simpler way for RA’s and RHC’s to request funds for certain types of events. This also provides a way for RHA Executives and Advisors to request funds to attend conferences held by UMaine RHA’s parent organizations: NEACURH and NACURH.

REQUIREMENTS:
•Requests for conferences must be submitted two weeks prior to the conference.
•RA’s and RHC’s should submit their requests by Monday at noon to guarantee a response before Friday.
•All expenses must be listed in detail on the form request.
•Supervisors/Advisors MUST send all receipts to Andrea Gifford, 315 Memorial Union, within 1 week and have “RHA AFR” written on it.
•”Sponsored by RHA” or the RHA logo must be somewhere on all announcements and advertisements.
•RHC’s are limited to $100 using this form.
•RA supervisors should sign off on the request (eRezLife) before submitting.

An email will be sent out after the request is approved by the VPFA. If the VPFA has questions about your request, you will be contacted by email. If no response, your supervisor may be contacted or the request denied.

Requests are due at noon on Mondays, and responses will be sent out Monday afternoons. Any sent after Monday noon may not get approved until the following Monday. If it is urgent, please contact the VPFA.

Any questions about AFR’s can be directed to Joshua Northrop, VP of Financial Affairs, at um.rha@maine.edu.
