The City University of New York (CUNY) and the federal government prohibit voluntary cost-sharing. If the funder requires mandatory cost-sharing, you must provide the amount and the source of your cost-sharing proposal, which the Cabinet must approve.


Reassigned Time

If you request reassigned time, you must provide the semester/session you plan to use and the amount of reassigned time, either credit hours or percent of effort.



If you are requesting reassigned time, this is considered effort. Enter the percentage of your effort charged to the grant budget and the effort start and end date. Reassigned time and charging of effort are subject to Chair approval.
