Reporting Requirements

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, 30 days after the end of each budget period for grants with multiple budget periods, unless otherwise noted in the Notice of Award. Final reports are due 90 days after the end of the project period. For grants where the budget period and the project period are the same, an annual report is due 30 days after each 12 month period effective with the start date of the award. A final report is due 90 days after the end of the project period. Any project funds that remain unobligated at the end of the project period as reported on the SF-425 are deobligated at close out and returned to the Treasury, unless the grantee has requested an extension during the time the grant was active.

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.
