Refreshing Grace Periods for Quotas


I have successfully implemented the quota feature in RHEL 3. However, I had given an initial default grace period of 7 days to begin with. Then, I want to change it to 0 seconds and then apply this on all the users with immediate effect. Is there any way of changing this grace period and immediately updating the grace period already allotted to existing users? Please help
