Quarterly Report Template

As conditions of the Wisconsin Coastal Management Grant Program, grant recipients are required to submit quarterly reports October 1, January 2, April 1 and July 1 for the duration of the grant and a final report.

Beginning with Fiscal Year 2012, the Wisconsin Coastal Management Program (WCMP) adopted a reporting format to more closely follow the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (OCRM) reporting guidelines. 

Grant recipients use report templates generated with specific grant information. 

A completed report example with directions, descriptions and/or sample filled in sections is also provided.

Performance Measures

Regarding Performance Measures, the WCMP, as terms of continuing federal grant funding, is required to submit numbers for defined areas in

            Government Coordination & Decision Making
            Public Access
            Coastal Habitat
            Coastal Habitat
            Coastal Dependent Uses & Community Development

The numbers generated by activities in these areas must be reported for the fiscal year in which they occurred by the required deadline.  This means that for an activity occurring between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013, it must be reported to OCRM for that fiscal year by July 30, 2012.  Even with an extension, for your project and the WCMP to “receive credit” for an activity it must be reported in the fiscal year it occurred. 

Grant recipient cooperation in using the template formats and providing Performance Measure numbers on a quarterly basis will help the WCMP improve its reporting.

Final Report

The final report form asks different questions and requires listing and attaching the deliverables.
