One 15-passenger van per team; fuel covered by NCCC (except in Hawai’i and Alaska where a means of transportation and fuel must be provided)
Limited funds specifically designated for the team to purchase groceries if the Project Sponsor cannot provide food (previously, meals have been provided by cafeterias, restaurants, or church groups, gift cards to grocery stores, or access to food banks)
