State recipients should request performance period extensions as needed.
EPA’s grants to states are for the most part financed with “no year” appropriations that remain available until expended. Instances of EPA having to de-obligate funds due to delays in state projects will be rare. Examples of EPA programs supported by “no-year” appropriations include Continuing Environmental Program Grants and Performance Partnership Grants under 40 CFR Part 35 Subpart A, Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds, Cooperative Agreements funded from the Leaking Underground Storage Tank Trust Fund, Diesel Emission Reduction Act grants, and Brownfields grants.
