Superseding Grant Agreements/Decrease Amendment Letters

Amendments can be produced after the fact if the grantee requires it. A superseding grant agreement should be produced if modifications are requested before the grantee has countersigned the agreement, or if the modifications requested are so substantial it is simpler to revise the entire agreement.

If a grantee determines that they will not need the entire amount of the grant, a modification letter reducing the grant amount can be produced. In Budapest this is an official practice (called a “decrease amendment”), but it is optional in New York, based on the preferences of the grantee and the program. The Legal department should also be consulted if there is any question.
