Reporting

Grantees are responsible for meeting reporting requirements and the recurring reporting deadlines of May 31 and November 30 of each year. Failure to do so could result in a request to return funds and will disqualify you from future proposals.

A.    Progress reports: DUE MAY 31 and NOVEMBER 30

If the project exceeds 6 months in duration, progress reports (descriptive and financial) are due to CREOi each May 31 and Nov 30 (regardless of initiation date of work) until completion or termination of the project.

Progress reports shall include:

  • One paragraph succinctly describing the situation being addressed by the project.
  • The original list of project objectives, with a detailed description of progress to date under each objective.
  • Any additional relevant information that does not relate specifically to stated objectives, e.g., unexpected findings, successes/challenges, changes to project.
  • Electronic copies of all products to date related to the project (photos, manuscripts, articles, conference posters, brochures, flyers, etc).
  • A completed financial statement (template included with your original grant agreement).

B.    Final report: DUE 30 days after project completion

A final report shall be submitted to CREOi within 30 days of completion or termination of the project. Your final report is a document that should be able to stand alone to represent your entire project. Please do not refer to progress reports in your final report.

The final report shall include two elements:

1. PROJECT COMPLETION SUMMARY

  • Any additional relevant information that does not relate specifically to stated objectives, e.g., unexpected findings, successes/challenges, changes to project.
