JANUARY 2013

  • The Board approved a change to the CGMA Manual: Appendix F - Disaster Response

CGMA wishes to convert disaster loans into grants to the maximum extent possible. To help achieve this goal the Board approved the following statement to be added to the bottom of page F-4 of the CGMA Manual:

 

"Consideration may be given for other miscellaneous expenses, not to exceed $1,000."

 

This change takes into consideration the small differences in identified items up to the total amount of the loan, thus allowing the conversion of the entire amount of Disaster Assistance given as a loan to be converted into a grant, when warranted.

 

Please make a pen-and-ink change to the CGMA Manual adding this statement to the bottom of page F-4. This change will be included in the next change to the CGMA Manual (01/23/13)

  • Correction to the CGMA Manual

Please make a pen-and-ink change to page 3-1 of the CGMA Manual, in the second paragraph from the bottom, change: "See paragraph 3-C-9" to "See paragraph 3-C-10 for additional information concerning items where assistance will not be provided."
