Safety Margin

A technique used to “age” unused or unspent funds when grant funds are deobligated by the closing of a grant, the cancellation of a grant or at the request of the grantee. The purpose is to determine if the deobligated funds remain within their period of availability without actually having to identify the year they were apportioned.
