Projects funded under the 319 Program are required to submit two reports annually describing progress according the project’s workplan. The first report is submitted by April 15th to describe activities which took place between October 1st and March 31st. The second report is due October 15th for activities which took place between April 1st and September 30th.
EPA guidelines specify that the performance reports be two to three pages in length and include a performance/milestone summary, slippage reports (providing reasons for delays in meeting scheduled milestones and actions taken to correct any current or anticipated problems), and any additional pertinent information. The reports should be descriptive of the activities performed rather than a simple accounting of the funding spent to support the project. One effective way to do this is to structure your report according to the tasks you laid out in your work plan and describe the progress made in each task. Also any specific details regarding BMP implementation should be included as well, and should describe the type, extent and location of the practice.
