Will the due date for July to December 2020 discretionary program progress reports be extended?
The due date for July to December 2020 discretionary program progress reports has been changed from Jan. 30, 2021, to Feb. 28, 2021. The Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) and the Violence Against Women Act Measuring Effectiveness Initiative (VAWA MEI) understand that grantees may be hindered in reporting complete and accurate information due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the JustGrants transition. We recommend that grantees complete progress reports to the best of their abilities and submit them before the deadline of Feb. 28, 2021. Every progress report form includes a narrative field where grantees can provide additional information about the data (the last narrative question of the form). Use that space to explain any incomplete or missing data. We encourage you to also use other narrative fields to discuss the impact COVID-19 has had on grant support activities.
