you talking for 'depreciation' value, or are you talking re-sell/used-market value?

depreciation value == original price of asset -  (( original price of asset / useful life of asset in years ) * age of asset)

used market value would be look at digit smith for other people selling or call the manufacturer

I think depreciation value..

we are applying for a grant and they will not give us $$ for more than what the equipment is worth.

looks like the IRS says depreciation on equipment is max 10 years... obviously the resell value after 10 years is a lot higher than 0, but that's the most you can show as depreciation.

I'd think that your gear vendor or maybe even a broker, could give you an equipment appraisal that would count for your application.
