ACL has standard guidelines for reporting for grantees that receive funding from ACL. These Guidelines provide instructions for semi-annual and final performance reporting. To view the instructions, read the
Current Guidelines for Preparing Performance Reports for Grants (PDF, 61KB).
Semi-Annual Reports are due 30 days after each 6-month reporting period. Final Reports are due within 90 days of the project’s completion date. The Final Report takes the place of the Semi-Annual Report at the end of the final year of the grant. The Final Report is due 90 days after the project ends.
The Financial Status Report (SF-425) (PDF) is required annually, unless otherwise noted in the Notice of Award. Any project funds that remain unused at the end of the project period as reported on the SF-425 are returned to the Treasury, unless the grantee has requested an extension during the time the grant was active. Annual reports are due 90 days after the end of the budget period.
Please note: Some programs funded by ACL may have individual reporting requirements that differ from those above. Regardless, both financial and programmatic reporting is required by statute for all ACL grant programs.
