When Do We Need to Submit or Request Facility Use Agreements?
What is a Facility Use Agreement (FUA)?
An FUA is an agreement between UC ANR (and its programs, such as 4-H, Master Gardeners/Master Food Preservers, etc.) and another party (such as a city, county, school district, business, etc.) to use its facilities (land, meeting rooms, property, etc.) for a short term for purposes of holding meetings, demonstrations, etc.
The FUA should be for a specific location and duration of time. It may be a one-time event or activity or a recurring activity. FUAs may be used for a rental of a space or when there is no charge. Some facilities or organizations may have their own format for an FUA, or in some cases, you may use UCCE local office facility use agreement request format when one does not exist.
When is a Facility Use Agreement (FUA) needed?
A FUA is always helpful to spell out the details of using a facility for UC ANR programs. As noted above, a FUA is recommended when renting or using a meeting space or other facilities for short term or recurring meetings or program activities.
There are some cases where Best Practice FUA Preferred; but not required. Please refer to the FUA Cheat Sheet below
