Releasing Held Warrants
Federal funds are exempt from the warrant hold program, including:
- Payments made in whole or part with federal funds
- Payments required by federal law
The paying agency must release these warrants within 30 days of the payment date to prevent warrant offset.
- Review the TINS 6204: Held Warrant Report for Issuing Agency every day to identify any warrant(s) on hold issued with federal funds.
- Complete the Warrant Release or Reinstatement Request form (00-432) (login required) PDF for each held warrant that includes any federal funds.
Note: The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number or appropriate federal statutory reference must be provided on the release form. Verify CFDA numbers on the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance website.
