Section 220.70   Terms of the Grant

conditions that apply to their receipt and use of grant funds
under this program, including the following:

     a)   Applicants may be asked to clarify certain aspects of
          their proposals. A negotiated and finalized proposal
          returned to the applicant, with an authorized signature
          affixed to the cover page, will constitute an approved
          grant agreement with the State Board of Education.

     b)   Orders for payment will be submitted to the Office of
          the Comptroller by the State Board of Education
          according to a negotiated payment schedule. Payments
          may be reduced from scheduled amounts if periodic
          reports show excessive cash on hand.

          amendment to the Budget Summary Form approved budget,
          using forms supplied by the State Board of Education,
          to show the new amounts required and attaching an
          explanation for the changes. A budget amendment must
          be submitted for approval whenever an individual line
          item changes by more than $500 $1,000 or 10% 20

          in the approved budget. Budget amendments will be
          approved if the proposed distribution of resources or
          activities would have been approvable within the
          original application.
