Multi-Year Contingent

Multi-year contingent grants allow a program to express intent to fund an organization or project/program for multiple years without fully committing the funds. Per Clarifications to Policy on "Multi-Year Support Using Contingent Grants" memo, this mechanism is favored for grants of 2 years duration or longer, where there are annual payment installments of at least $100k. If Program recommend a multi-year grant of these characteristics, but decides not to use the contingent mechanism, then reasoning for full accrual up front should be noted in the docket write-up.
