As the grant interface is available 24/7, all Application and Report deadlines are 11:59pm (just before midnight) on the date specified. Applications may be submitted up to 30 days prior to the deadline, but will not be accepted the day after the deadline, regardless of whether a deadline falls on a weekend.
Final Reports for all Grantees are due 30 days after the project end date stated in the grant contract. Reports are assigned through the grant interface and may be found in the Follow Up Forms section on the Applicant Dashboard. As part of the reporting process, all Grantees are required to send letters of appreciation to their senators and representatives in the Minnesota State Legislature. Sample Thank You Letter
