Resources for Awarded Projects
Please refer to your award terms and conditions for the specific requirements associated with your award. Below we provide some additional resources that you may use as required.
The RESTORE Science Program requires a semi-annual progress report every six months from the start date of the award that is due 30 days after the six-month reporting period. A final report is due 90 days after the close out date of the award. Forms for both reports are found below. Each report should be accompanied by a milestone chart — please work with your federal program officer to get the current version for your project. Completed reports should be submitted through Grants Online.

2) Financial Reports
NOAA Grants Management Division (GMD) sets the requirements for the financial reports. All financial reports are due on a semi-annual basis and use the project periods of 4/1 to 9/30 and 10/1 to 3/31. If the award start date begins other than April 1, or October 1, then the first report would only cover a portion of the reporting period.
Submit financial reports through Grants Online. Semi-annual financial reports (S425) are due 30 days after the end of each reporting period. Final financial reports are due 90 days after the award expires.
