Closeout preparation

Award Closeout

Award Closeout is the end of the grant process. The Grant Award Administrator leads the efforts in completing Closeout. To complete a closeout, entities must submit final financial, performance, and other reports required under the grant, and meet award conditions, within 120 days after the grant award expires or is terminated.

Closeouts are automatically generated in JustGrants one day after the grant end date or automatically if an award is declined. Closeouts are automatically submitted 121 days after the end date of the grant.
