Title: Project Period Extension GAM

Project Period Extension GAM (Grant Award Modification)

A Project Period Extension GAM is used to extend the length of the funded award. The most direct way to do this is to change the End Date. JustGrants will make the end date the last day of the last month of the extension and auto-calculate the end date for No Cost Extension GAMs.
