Project Award NotificationDOE 200

Items purchased with these funds must be made within the specified budget period


My district disburses the funds via reimbursement. Isn’t there another way to receive my grant funds?

Can I use this as a back up/emergency fund?

Do I have to use the whole Project Period as specified in the Award Letter?

Why should I complete the planning phase before the end of the project period?

What paperwork do I need to send to my Grant Specialist before the end of each project period?

Can there be a break between phases of the Grant?
