This total represents approved grant payment activity during the selected fiscal year. However, approximately 90% of the money awarded in our program areas is part of multi-year commitments, so a grant may appear in multiple years of activity. The list below provides additional information about specific projects approved and/or paid during the fiscal year selected, including the project start date and the length of our commitment.
