- FY2012 awards are issued as supplemental awards to the approved Title VI applications using the existing FY2011 grant numbers, i.e., starting with the number “11”.
- FY2012 funds can only be expended on activities starting April 1, 2012, or later.
- The project period for the Section 311 Nutrition Services Incentive Program (NSIP) awards is now changed to match the project period for the Title VI Parts A, B, and C awards, which is 4/1/2011 to 3/31/2014.
- The budget period is extended to 3/31/2013 to cover a 24-month period. All FY2011 and FY2012 grant amounts can be obligated within this period.
- A Program Performance Report (PPR) is due annually. The report is due within 90 days of the end of the budget period (June 30th).
