Your Grant from Start to Finish

Getting Started

Read your Grant Agreement. Do this before signing and periodically throughout your project to make sure you comply with all requirements. Pay special attention to the exhibits of your grant agreement; these vary among grant agreements. Exhibit letters (e.g, Exhibit A) also may vary among grant agreements, so exhibit names are provided here rather than letters.

  • Start date. No reimbursable expenses can be incurred prior to that date.
  • Reporting Schedule. Plan to have required reports submitted by the dates noted.
  • Schedule for Release of Funds. Use these amounts in the first column of your first fund request.
  • Conditions of Agreement. These must be complied with as you manage your project.
  • Project Completion Report Requirements.
  • Post-Implementation Status Report Requirements. For restoration projects.
  • Permits and Licenses. This shows permits and/or licenses you agreed to provide.
  • Insurance Requirements.

Continue interactions with project partners throughout your project.

Initiate conversations and process with permitting agencies (if applicable).

Get Land Use form filled out and signed (if it wasn’t done and submitted with application).

Get Match form signed and dated by partner(s) for any secured funds. Make sure the signer is authorized to commit said funds. Alternatively, get a letter of support, making sure it documents the amount of secured match and what it entails (e.g., cash, in-kind labor or technical support, materials, etc).

Develop landowner agreements and have them signed for the property where the project is sited. Refer to your grant agreement for specific requirements.
