Requesting Reimbursement

To ensure an efficient use of both state and federal funding, participating partners are required to submit reimbursement requests on a quarterly basis. A complete reimbursement request, known as an “AFR Packet” typically consists of: an application for reimbursement (AFR), an application for reimbursement supplemental sheet (AFR-S), a quarterly report or project status report (QR), and supporting documentation such as invoices and receipts to support the reimbursement request. The program specific AFR, AFR-S, and QR are detailed above. The standard reporting schedule for Growing Greener, Section 319, Watershed Specialist and other such grant programs is detailed in the table below:
