In order to monitor the progress of our grantees and build greater consistency in how grantees report on their progress and accomplishments, it is requested that you submit a report within a one year time frame. If your entire project has not been completed within one year or the funds have not been totally used, please tender an interim report regarding the status of the project. Your organization will not be eligible for future funding until an interim report or final report has been received, whichever is appropriate.
