Grant Changes/Grant Amendments

Komen Northeast Ohio will have at least 14 days to review and accept/reject any proposed changes.  Grantees may modify the budget without prior approval of Komen, so long as the modification does not change any budget expense subcategory by more than 5%; increase the amount of any cost above the maximum allowable for a subcategory item (such as indirect or equipment costs); or result in an expenditure outside of the Grant purpose.

Amendments and Grant Change Requests can only be initiated by the Project Director and submitted by the Authorized Signer. Amendments may be submitted for the following:

  • A no-cost extension request
  • Budget changes
  • Personnel changes
  • Other requests as deemed appropriate by the Affiliate

The GeMS Grantee User Manual has complete instructions on how to submit a grant change/grant amendment.
