CTAS GRANTEE REMINDER: Progress Reports are due July 30, 2016!

The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) requires grantees to report on the effectiveness of the activities carried out with grant funds, and achievements and challenges of the program. All of the sections must be addressed in your Progress Report Narrative. If no activities for a particular objective occurred during the reporting period, indicate “Not Applicable.”

Programs are encouraged to submit supporting documentation (i.e. flyers, news articles, brochures, pictures, or documents) that shows the programs progress and achievements during the reporting period.  You may submit attachments separately or include the information within the report.

The Progress Report Narrative is due no later than 30 days after the end of the reporting periods (January-June and July-December).  Therefore, your next Progress Report Narrative is due on July 30, 2016.

If you fail to submit your report by July 30, 2016, your funds will be frozen, delaying any funding downloads, until the report is submitted, with approval from your OVC Program Specialist.

Additionally, final Progress Reports are due within 90 days of the end date of the award. Please make sure you also submit your Performance Measures Analysis Excel Worksheet with your report.  If you encounter issues uploading your reports into GMS, please inform your assigned OVC grant manager and contact the GMS helpdesk at 888-549-9901, option 3 or via e-mail at GMSHelpDesk@usdoj.gov.

A supporting email was sent out from Unified Solutions to our grantees on June 23, 2016 with more information from the OVC regarding progress reporting. This email also includes progress reporting narrative templates.

As always if you need extra assistance with your reports, please contact us.
