Program Income for Sponsored Programs

Providing dental work to a patient may be considered program income on grant-sponsored projects.


Program Income is revenue earned from activities performed on an award. New York University (NYU) may have program income as a result of providing services to other organizations, individuals, and/or by the sale of items developed under the award.

NYU Approach

For federal awards, program income can be managed in one of three ways:

  1. Added to funds committed to the project and used to further programmatic objectives.
  2. Used to finance the non-Federal share of the project.
  3. Deducted from total project costs.

The sponsor’s award terms and conditions will designate the method for capturing program income.
