* In some circumstances, costs are incurred before devices are installed resulting in a reported cost where the quantity is zero.

Projects only report data on devices they plan to install. Each project installs equipment that best supports their individual goals. Therefore, the number of projects reporting is expected to vary by equipment category. The individual project reporting pages show what equipment that project is installing.

** All dollar figures are the total cost, which is the sum of the federal investment and cost share of the recipient (the recipient cost share must be at least 50% of the total overall project cost).
