FRIENDLY REMINDER to all current grantees: If you have an active Watershed Assistance Grant, reporting season is upon us!
As a requirement of your grant, reports must be completed. Your reporting obligation varies by the nature of the project activities completed during the calendar year. Even though reporting can seem like a hassle, it’s an excellent way to communicate all of the accomplishments and great work you’ve achieved on your project. Please see reporting options below:
1) If you completed a BMP implementation that involves pollutant load reduction, or involves work on a shoreline or wetland: By December 31, 2014 you must complete a Pollutants Controlled Report (PCR) form in addition to your semiannual progress report. Please note that the PCR must be submitted even if the grant is still in progress.
2) If you completed a BMP implementation, but it does not seem to fit the criteria of the PCR form: You must submit a Semiannual Progress Report by December 31, 2014 that covers all project activities. (You may not have to complete the PCR form. Please contact your project manager to discuss PCR requirements.)
3) If your project includes BMP implementation, but no BMPs were completed during this calendar year: You must submit a Semiannual Progress Report by December 31, 2014 that covers all project activities. You are not required to submit the PCR form.
4) If the scope of your project does not include BMP implementation: You must submit a Semiannual Progress Report by December 31, 2014 that covers all project activities. You are not required to submit the PCR form.
5) If your project is scheduled to end by December 31, 2014: You will need to submit a Final Report, and you are not required to submit separate PCR or progress report forms.
ALL reporting forms and guidance can be found here: http://des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/water/wmb/was/grant_resources.htm
We know reporting can be time consuming and a bit confusing, but we are here to help you get through it! Please contact your project manager with any questions.
