ARP Resolutions: The Program Income Policy was reviewed and reads as follows:
TOWN OF STOVALL
PROGRAM INCOME POLICY
Programs conducted by non-Federal entities, such as the Town of Stovall, are encouraged to earn income to offset program costs where appropriate.
Program income means gross income earned by the non-Federal entity that is directly generated by a supported activity earned as a result of the Federal award during the period of performance except as provided in CFR 200.307.
Program income includes but is not limited to income from fees for services performed, the use of rental or real or personal property acquired under Federal awards, the sale of commodities or items fabricated under a Federal award, license fees and royalties on patents and copyrights and principal and interest on loans made with Federal award funds. Interest earned on advances of Federal funds is not program income. Except as otherwise provided in Federal statutes, regulations, or the terms and conditions of the Federal award, program income does not include rebates, credits, discounts, and interest earned on any of them.
III. USE OF PROGRAM INCOME
If the award agency does not specify in its regulations or in the terms and conditions of an award or give prior approval of how program income is to be used, Option 1 below applies to all program income generated by the award. These funds must be used to further project directives and in accordance with the terms and conditions of the award.
The Federal agency may specify other program income use. Refer to the terms and conditions of the award for information specific to the project. The three options for use of program income described in federal regulations are:
Option 1 – Added to the award and used for purposes and under the conditions of the award.
Option 2 – Deducted from the total project allowable cost in determining the net allowable costs on which the federal share of costs is based.
Option 3 – With sponsor prior approval, used to meet the cost sharing or matching requirements of the award.
Unless specified in the terms and conditions of an award, there are no Federal requirements for use of program income earned after the period of performance. The Federal government may negotiate agreements regarding these funds as a part of the closeout process.
The Town if required to, will report program income generated during the performance of the sponsored project. The Finance Department will assign an accounting code for program income at the time of the application process, if required.
V. FEDERAL REGULATIONS
This policy reflects the provisions of the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards, 2CFR Part 200, otherwise referred to as the Uniform Guidance (UG). The UG became effective as of August 9, 2022, and all awards issued on or after this date must be managed in accordance with its provision. It is important to verify the applicable regulations for an individual award, which may be found in the Award Notice issued by the funding agency.
These guidelines pertain to Federally sponsored projects and may be used as guidance for all sponsors unless specifically addressed in a non-federal sponsor’s policies and/or procedures.
Adopted: This the 9th day August 2022.
