During the Spring after the project is funded, the grantee will receive notification that a non-competing continuation application will be due within approximately 60 days. Grantees also receive non-competing continuation application guidance and deadlines. Grantees must submit non-competing continuation applications in a timely fashion, using Grants.gov and the Electronic Handbooks (EHB). MCHB program officials review these reports to determine whether or not the grantee is making satisfactory progress as outlined in the original application and to review performance measures and administrative data. Upon satisfactory review, a new notice of grant award is processed to provide funding for the next project year.
A financial report is required within 90 days of the end of each budget period. It must be submitted electronically through the HRSA EHBs. The report is an accounting of expenditures under the project that year. Please note that the Federal government has replaced the PSC 272 and the SF 269 (FSR) forms with one form, the Federal Financial Report(FFR) also known as the SF 425. Effective April 1, 2010, all HRSA grantees will no longer submit the SF 269 (FSR) but will instead submit the SF 425 electronically via the Electronic Handbooks (EHBs). One hundred and twenty (120) days after the end of the budget period, the grantee is required to go back into the EHB to finalize any data that may have changed in their non-competing continuation application.
