Budget Modification GAM (Grant Award Modification)

A Budget Modification GAM is a type of Financial GAM used to add program income. Each budget category can be updated and once the updated amount is entered, JustGrants will calculate the requested changes. You can add, subtract, or edit the category totals. The Revised Budget column can never be negative, and the Federal Award Amount cannot be edited. Federal Funds Amount + Match Amount + Program Income Amount must equal Total Project Costs.
