Travel Reimbursement - STATES ONLY

NASWA will provide up to $2000 to each participating state to help cover travel costs. Allowable travel costs include transportation, hotel lodging, per diem costs (consistent with the General Services Administration schedule or the state’s out-of-state per diem requirements, whichever is less), and minor incidental costs like parking. NASWA will reimburse states only for accommodations on the nights of April 25 – 28, 2022.

After the seminar and upon receipt and approval of a single invoice summarizing travel costs incurred, NASWA will issue one reimbursement check per state for all participants from that state. The invoice to NASWA should include the name of the attendees, total travel expenses paid per attendee, the total requested reimbursement amount, and copies of all corresponding receipts to support the reimbursement, as required by the state’s travel policy.

The invoice and documentation, including mailing instructions for the check (attention of individual or department, and address), must be scanned and emailed to accounting@naswa.org. Each attending state should submit its invoice no later than July 31, 2022. NASWA will not honor invoices submitted after July 31, 2022.
