Cash Grant Sequester Percentage Reduced to 7.2%

Explore:  Grants OMB Sequestration

Treasury has issued an updated message on sequestration on its 1603 Program website, which can be accessed here. The sequestration message specifies that the reduction percentage applicable to any Section 1603 cash grant award made on or after October 1, 2013 through September 30, 2014, will be 7.2%, irrespective of when the application was received by Treasury. Cash grant awards made on or after March 1, 2013 through September 30, 2013 had been subject to an 8.7% sequestration reduction percentage. The 7.2% reduction percentage applicable through September 30, 2014 is slightly lower than the projected 7.3% reduction percentage indicated in the April 10, 2013 Office of Management and Budget report titled OMB Sequestration Preview Report to the President and Congress for Fiscal Year 2014 and OMB Report to the Congress on the Joint Committee Reductions for Fiscal Year 2014 (which can be accessed here. The sequestration reduction rate will be applied unless and until the federal government enacts a law that cancels or otherwise impacts the sequester.

The updated sequester message does not contain a date as to when the message was published on-line, but it appears to have been issued on or about September 30.
