Your Grant Report is an important part of being transparent about the way we distribute funds. Reports detail what happened with your proposed activity (successes, learnings, outcomes) and any information required by the special conditions of your Grant Agreement. You may be required to complete the following as part of your grant agreement:
- Progress Report (for grants requiring multiple payments) advising progress to date and earmarking any possible changes required
- Final report demonstrating the success of the grant
- An Auditor’s Financial Certificate (AFC) (for any grantee paid over $80,000 in a financial year) declaring that grant funds have been expended as per the approved grant budget in your Grant Agreement.
Your Grant Report helps us to evaluate and demonstrate the value of our grants. It also helps to create case studies to support requests for more funding and profile ways our grants can help other community media organisations.
When is my Grant Report due?
The due date of our Grant Report is included in your Grant Agreement or on the correspondence we forward with your payment remittance advice. Please notify the CBF in writing before the due date if you need an extension. If you are also providing an Auditor’s Financial Certificate, it must be completed within five months of the end of your financial year.
