PROGRAM INCOME AND EXPENSES
§200.80   Program income.

Program income means gross income earned by the non-Federal entity that is directly generated by a supported activity or earned as a result of the Federal award during the period of performance except as provided in §200.307 paragraph (f). (See §200.77 Period of performance.) Program income includes but is not limited to income from fees for services performed, the use or rental or real or personal property acquired under Federal awards, the sale of commodities or items fabricated under a Federal award, license fees and royalties on patents and copyrights, and principal and interest on loans made with Federal award funds. Interest earned on advances of Federal funds is not program income. Except as otherwise provided in Federal statutes, regulations, or the terms and conditions of the Federal award, program income does not include rebates, credits, discounts, and interest earned on any of them. 

Examples of Program Income may include the following:
  • Fees received by your organization or placement sites in exchange for the placement of AmeriCorps members at a particular site
  • Fees received by your organization or placement sites in exchange for work performed by AmeriCorps members or staff on the CNCS or Grantee Share of the grant
  • Fees received by your organization or placement sites from the community for participation in your program’s services
  • Proceeds earned by your organization or placement sites from the sale of goods produced by AmeriCorps members or staff on the CNCS or Grantee Share of the grant

FEDERAL SHARE OF PROGRAM INCOME
Federal Share of Program Income is excess program income earned as a result of the AmeriCorps grant that may be used to either reduce the Federal (CNCS) share of the grant or to add additional activities beyond which is in the approved grant application. Federal Share of Program Income is reported separately from program income used as match on the grant.

Expenditures of excess program income fall into two categories. 
  1. Program income expended in accordance with the Deduction Alternative (this is program income that was added to reduce the federal (CNCS) share of the total project costs); and
  2. Program income expended in accordance with Addition Alternative (this is program income that was added to funds committed to the total project costs and expended to further eligible project or program activities.)
Note: Do not report any Program Income here that is being used towards match/grantee share. Only report program income that is in excess of your match/grantee share or that is not otherwise being reported.
