*To ensure timely expenditures of federal funds, staff may change the Federal Fiscal Funding Year approved for an activity without changing the funding amount. This may be necessary if an activity is delayed and the funds could be utilized in a timelier manner if moved to another activity. In these cases, the delayed activity shall be awarded funding from a later Federal Fiscal Funding Year. This shall promote the expenditure of older funds first.
