Amending a grant
If you received a grant from the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) for Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20), and plan to increase or decrease any category by more than 10%, you must first submit a budget amendment request to EEC.
You must submit a Budget Amendment request to EEC at least 30 days before the proposed change and/or no later than April 30, 2020 for final budget amendments.
Amendments received after April 30, 2020 will not be accepted.
- You may not implement proposed changes until your Budget Amendment has been fiscally and programmatically approved.
- You may only amend your budgets up to two times per year. (unless EEC has requested a budget amendment.)
- Any changes to your grant budgets must continue to adhere to the administration cost cap (no more than 10%).
- You must adhere to the amendment guidelines and Budget Amendment Instructions for your specified grant program.
- Proposed programmatic changes: A budget amendment must be filed if the justification for programming and implementation of the grant will change significantly, even if there is no funding change on the line items.
- Please select the SUBCONTRACTOR Budget Amendment (if applicable) and click save, even if you are NOT amending any subcontractor budgets. The total cost of the amendment must equal the lead agency budget + the subcontractor(s) budgets.
- You must click the SUBMIT button in order for your Budget Amendment to be submitted to EEC. Once you click the submit button, there will be a SUBMISSION DATE and TIME at the top of each page.
- PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY HARD COPIES OF YOUR BUDGET AMENDMENT UNTIL YOUR ELECTRONIC VERSION HAS BEEN APPROVED BY EEC.
