Program Income


Any income you make from your award is considered program income.

  • You can use program income to advance your program objectives, or you can refund the income back to your awarding agency.
  • For most awards, the program income may only be used for allowable program costs and must be spent prior to draw downs. The draw down restriction does not apply to Juvenile Accountability Block Grant (JABG) and Justice Assistance Grant (JAG) awards.

If the cost is allowable under your program award, then it is allowable to apply program income to that cost.
