Reporting requirements for grants
Our national grantees must provide narrative and financial reports roughly every six months during the applicable grant period.
If your organization is a grantee through our national or GoLocal: Cultivating Healthy Communities program – you must show your work’s impact through:
- Measurement and evaluation
- Communication and dissemination of results
- Sharing of best practices
If you are chosen to receive a grant, we will provide you with a contract letter that will include specifics about reporting requirement or other responsibilities related to the grant.
