Carryover is a process through which unobligated funds remaining at the end of the budget period may be carried forward to the next budget period. “Carryover authority” refers to grant awards for which carryover happens by default, without the grantee first submitting a prior approval request to NIAID.

Most NIAID grant awards have carryover authority. If your grant’s Notice of Award does not include carryover authority, read our Carryover Requests SOP to learn how to initiate carryover at the end of a funding segment.
