Grantees must file status reports, both narrative and financial, by specific deadlines that will be determined with each individual award. Short-term projects (1 year or less) will require a final report and long-term projects (more than 1 year) will require both interim and final reports. The report narrative helps monitor progress toward project objectives and provides an important measure of accountability for the grantee. The financial report enables Foundation staff to monitor progress based on the project budget vs. actual expenditures and funding received. For grants paid in stages, the Foundation must approve interim reports before releasing the next payment of the grant.
