Immunization Related Grants

DSHS Immunization related grants have a budget to support the scope of work that typically provides funding for clinical and administrative salaries, employee fringe benefits, supplies (medical or office), contractual services and in some cases, equipment. Many of the Immunization related grants do generate Program Income (PI) via client’s copays or through third-party payments.

According to Uniform Terms and Conditions of the grant, Program Income is “Income directly generated from funds provided under this Contract or earned only as a result of such funds is Program Income. Unless otherwise required under the Program, Grantee shall use the addition alternative, as provided in TxGMS, for the use of Project income to further the Program, and Grantee shall spend the Program Income on the Project.”
