These position categories were created to give state agencies the flexibility to hire employees to fill time-specific positions funded by Federal grants, interagency contracts, public charity grants, private foundation grants and research grants. These classifications allow agencies to offer fringe benefits to employees for the duration of the grant/contract without obligating the state agency or institution to retain the employee past the grant/contract period.  

Time-Limited Positions are generally funded by a contract between the agency and another entity (internal or external to the agency). Temporary Grant Positions are generally funded by a grant between the agency and another entity.
