In light of the limited funding resources provided for each Federal award to achieve its own public performance goals, OMB added restrictions to the flexibilities allowed in the Allowability of salaries and other project activities.
Clarifying, that salaries cannot be paid by a Federal award and the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans or other Federal CARES Act funding to avoid double-charging. Please see the OMB Memo in full here.
