What is an FTE?

An FTE (full-time equivalent) is the metric used to report the hours worked by grant-funded staff. 1.00 FTE is equal to 1,040 hours, or 40 hours per week multiplied by 26 weeks (6 months).  A 100% grant-funded staff person who worked the entire 6-month reporting period will be reported as 1 FTE; 1,040 hours worked = 1.00 FTEs.  FTEs should be reported in decimals, not percentages.
