  3. It is encouraged to submit an introduction letter in which the parent or sponsor describes how and why the specific item(s) and/or service(s) would assist the beneficiary.

  5. There are three types of items and/or services that the MPFBC may provide funding for:
    a. funding for item(s) such as computer equipment which requires a minimum of three official quotes.
