You as the Project Leader can become a paid employee when your project budget can support ongoing payroll costs. If you are considering becoming a paid employee, please discuss the viability of your plan with your program and finance liaisons.
Additionally, Community Partners requires specific approval by your project advisory board, to protect you from any appearance of conflict of interest. Your project advisory board must review your project’s current funding and budget to confirm the amount available for your salary, including taxes and benefits. In accordance with IRS regulations, the compensation of highly paid employees may be subject to review and approval by the Community Partners board of directors.
