Grant Fund Reporting
Recipients of BWSR grant funds are required to report expenditures, measurable outcomes and activities from the previous calendar year as outlined in the grant agreement. BWSR may withhold grant payments if the grantee is not in compliance with ALL Board reporting requirements.
The deadline for grant reporting varies by grant program and the terms of the grant agreement; however, generally, these deadline dates are:
- February 1st *
- August 1st, and
- 30 days after the end of the grant agreement.
Grant Reporting Resources
Grant Expiration Dates List (updated August 5, 2016) - This is a list of grant (allocation) fund names and their respective original expiration dates.
eLINK Reporting at a Glance (posted December 2016) - This is reference of basic reporting elements that are expected to be entered in eLINK. Additional program reporting details may also be required.
Website Reporting Guidance – This is guidance and a checklist to meet the website reporting requirements.
Please reference your organization's grant agreements or consult with your Board Conservationist for grant-specific reporting requirements and exact dates. Failure by BWSR to list a grant or accurate expiration date does not constitute a waiver of the reporting requirement nor BWSR's right to enforce it. If you have questions regarding reporting, compliance, eligible activities, etc., please contact your board conservationist.
Guidance materials for reporting in eLINK can be found on the eLINK page.
