Grant close out info
It's time for us to close out our AFG2006 tanker grant. I could use some help with the narrative, what are they looking for? If you can offer some help e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

I just went throught one. Just tell them what you did and how you went through it.
If you don't give them enough information they ask you to ammend it.
I had to ammend mine and them after resubmitting it was accepted.

Also, if you stated you were replacing a vehicle, you need to document what you have done with the vehicle you have replaced.

We received a 2005 AFG for a tender. This is how I handled the closeout:
The Closeout Requested: "Provide a summary of the qualitative accomplishments that your grant has made for the duration of the grant period."
This sounded a lot like the Grant Application: "COST/BENEFIT: THE BENEFITS OUR DISTRICT AND OUR COMMUNITY WILL REALIZE IF THE PROJECT DESCRIBED IS FUNDED"
So all I did was copy the Cost/Benefit portion of my application, pasted it into the Closeout Report, and made the necessary changes.
Instead of saying "A new tender will do this, this, and this." It now reads "Our new tender IS doing this, this and this."

Got mine done
and it was a lot less painful than what I was expecting. Of course if I had read ALL of the directions the first time I would have gotten thru it a lot quicker. Who knew that the Feds have a form that actually makes sense.
