What is the Grant Goals and Objectives document?

In addition to submitting a semi-annual progress report, all Tribal Jurisdiction grantees are required to submit a separate document detailing their progress towards their grant goals and objectives.

The Grant Goals and Objectives document should be a Word or PDF file, but there are no formal requirements for what the document should look like; grantees are free to continue using whatever format they have used in the past.

Grantees who would like additional guidance can download and use a Grant Goals and Objectives Template from the VAWA MEI website. The template has tables for grantees to fill in their goals and objectives and also provides some examples.

To complete your Grant Goals and Objectives document:

  • Locate your Tribal Jurisdiction grant proposal.
  • Copy and paste the goals and objectives from your grant proposal into your Grant Goals and Objectives document.
  • Next, give an update on the status of each objective (“not started,” “in progress,” or “complete”) and describe relevant activities towards the progress of each goal during the respective reporting period.

Grantees are required to upload the completed Grant Goals and Objectives document as a second attachment in their JustGrants account, along with their completed semi-annual progress report. This is mandatory. The progress report is not considered complete without the Grant Goals & Objectives document.
