- After receiving a grant, we require a Progress Report by February 1 (Spring Grant Cycle) or August 1 (Fall Grant Cycle) of the following year. Progress Reports will be made available at least 1 month before the deadline.
- Upon review of the Progress Reports, we may request a Final Report from some grantee partners, in which case the deadlines are June 1 (Spring Grant Cycle) or December 1 (Fall Grant Cycle). If a grantee partner does not receive a request for a Final Report, no Final Report is required.
- For consideration, all Grant Reports must be submitted via the online portal (not mail or email).
- Grantee partners failing to submit reports in a timely manner are not eligible for future funding.
- We value reflection and assessment, especially when working with our grantee partners on shared goals as important and complex as environmental protection and social justice in Georgia. Therefore, we ask grantee partners to complete a Grant Report for several valuable reasons:
(1) Learn while analyzing your team’s external outcomes and goals (not outputs and activities) your team set in the grant application.
(2) Learn while analyzing your team’s external successes and setbacks.
(3) Learn while analyzing your team’s internal capacity (leadership, values, time management, resources, talent, partnerships, ideas, opportunities, opportunity costs, and the definition of success). That way, your team can better determine “why” and “how” to move forward for greater outcomes and goals (not just determine “what” output and activity comes next).
- Extension requests, if there are special circumstances, are required in advance of the grant report deadline.
