This Grant is being issued based on formulaic funding and the submission of the Uniform Grant Application is not required. 25.3. Indirect Cost Rate Submission. Section 22.10 of Part ONE notwithstanding, this section shall take precedence over Section 7.2. Indirect costs are not an allowable use of funds under this Grant Agreement. 25.4. Non-compliance. Section 13.3 of Part ONE is modified to add the sentence “Such actions may include steps necessary to initiate recoupment which may include offsets of future Medicaid reimbursement payments or other non-related state payments” to read as follows: "If Grantee fails to comply with the U.S. Constitution, applicable statutes, regulations or the terms and conditions of this or any Award, Grantor may impose additional conditions on Grantee, as described in 2 CFR 200.208. If Grantor determines that non-compliance cannot be remedied by imposing additional conditions, Grantor may take one or more of the actions described in 2 CFR 200.339. The Parties shall follow all Grantor policies and procedures regarding non-compliance, including, but not limited to, the procedures set forth in the State of Illinois Grantee Compliance Enforcement System. 44 Ill.

The Grant Funds awarded pursuant to this Agreement are being issued without an application process. Grantees are required to submit a Budget using the required Grantor template. Receipt of the Budget by HFS does not constitute approval of the spending plan contained therein. Failure to submit a complete Budget to Grantor in a timely manner may result in cancellation of this award. The Grantee shall program Grant Funds in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement and the submitted Budget. The Grantor will reference the Budget during the review of Final Reporting (ARTICLE XIII) as part of the closeout process of this Award. The Grantee will be notified during the closeout process of any funds deemed to be misspent and any subsequent repayment amounts (see Section 13.3 as modified above for non-compliance).

Audits
As per JCAR Title 44 Illinois Administrative Code 7000.90 - see also Article XXII and Article XXV of the issued grant agreements. HFS was granted an exception related to the audit standards in an effort to not impose additional audit requirements for this round of funding on entities which do not fall under the Single audit or GATA requirements based on other funding received. For entities not subject to these audit requirements due to other funding received, the Department will rely on cost reports which are submitted by providers as well as other planned monitoring activities to address the risk of non-compliance and determine whether the funds have been expended in accordance with the grant agreement, on eligible expenditures and within the expenditure period. Grantees which are subject to Single Audit should not include these funds in the calculation of the threshold or report them on their Schedule of Expenditures of Federal Awards (SEFA).
Records
Article IX: MAINTENANCE AND ACCESSIBILITY OF RECORDS; MONITORING 9.1. Records Retention. Grantee must maintain for three (3) years from the date of submission of the final expenditure report, adequate books, all financial records and, supporting documents, statistical records, and all other records pertinent to this Award, adequate to comply with 2 CFR 200.334, unless a different retention period is specified in 2 CFR 200.334, 44 Ill. Admin. Code 7000.430(a) and (b) or PART TWO or PART THREE. If any litigation, claim or audit is started before the expiration of the retention period, the records must be retained until all litigation, claims or audit exceptions involving the records have been resolved and final action taken. 9.2. Accessibility of Records. Grantee, in compliance with 2 CFR 200.337 and 44 Ill. Admin. Code 7000.430(f), must make books, records, related papers, supporting documentation and personnel relevant to this Agreement available to authorized Grantor representatives, the Illinois Auditor General, Illinois Attorney General, any Executive Inspector General, Grantor’s Inspector General, federal authorities, any person identified in 2 CFR 200.337, and any other person as may be authorized by Grantor (including auditors), by the State of Illinois or by federal statute.
