Grant Reporting Reminder for Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) Grantees

To inform OVC of the status and progress of their projects, and to ensure that every victim of crime receives the best responses and services, recipients of discretionary funds must provide OVC with Semi-Annual Progress Reports, Quarterly Financial Status Reports, and Final Progress and Financial Status Reports. Grantees must submit these reports on a consistent and timely basis. Instructions for completing the reports can be found in the OJP Post Award Instructions document and a full explanation of these requirements can be found in the OJP Financial Guide (for grants awarded prior to 12/26/14) and DOJ Grants Financial Guide (for grants awarded on or after 12/26/14). Questions concerning progress reporting should be directed to the OVC Victim Justice Program Specialist for the award.

Failure to submit required progress reports will lead to freezing of funds and may lead to suspension and/or termination of an award.

Semi-Annual Progress Reports are due as follows:
July 30 (for the period beginning January 1 and ending June 30)
January 30 (for the period beginning July 1 and ending December 31)

January 30 for the reporting period ending December 31.
April 30 for the reporting period ending March 31.
July 30 for the reporting period ending June 30.
