Tampa Annual Funding Process

What is CAFC?

CAFC, or the Campus Allocation Funding Committee, is comprised of 6 USF student voting members, 2 alternate USF student members, 1 USF student non-voting member, and 3 USF non-voting staff members. You can refer to Student Government’s Statutes on BullsConnect to see a more detailed list of these members and their roles.

The purpose of CAFC is to, through a fair and viewpoint neutral process, prepare the annual budget bill for the Activity and Service Recommendation Committee. This annual budget consists of 12 Student Success Departments and 250+ student organizations. These entities are funded through the Activity and Service (A&S) fee. This fee is paid by every student as a $7.00 flat fee and $12.08 per credit hour, per semester. The A&S fee supports student governing boards and programs and student organizations to improve services directly related to student activities. These services include but are not limited to: the USF Homecoming Concert, USF Recreation and Wellness, the Marshall Student Center and USF Week of Welcome. Student Government, through the annual and interim process, allocate these departments and student organizations based off standards created by Student Government. Florida Statute 1009.24 states that Student Governments across Florida will allocate the student Activity and Service fee.

CAFC Chair: Joey Cipriano, USF SG Tampa Governor
CAFC Vice-Chair: Jacey Cannon,  USF SG Tampa Campus Council Chair
