Collection Needs Assessment  Awardees have a requirement to prepare a final report. Please note, our final report submission process is paperless

Final Report Deadlines: If your site assessment request was granted in the May 2017 round, your Final Report is due by May 31, 2018. If your request was granted in the October 2017 round, your Final Report is due by October 31, 2018.

Please Note: You must notify GHHN if you do not anticipate spending all your awarded funds.  Any unspent funds must be received back to GHHN at the time of Final Report submission, made payable to Greater Hudson Heritage Network. Unspent funds will be re-granted in subsequent grant rounds. 

Some parts of the final report will be filled out in fields in the portal, and other parts of the final report will now need to be uploaded as PDF files. Regardless of whether or not you will be filling in fields directly or uploading documents, we highly recommend that you compose your answers offline and copy/paste them into the online form so that you have your work backed up if there is a technical issue. Please note, questions with fillable fields will not accept formatting such as bulleted lists or boldface or italics. This formatting is allowable in PDF files that you upload.

Your final report MUST consist of:

1.    A narrative (maximum one page) addressing the following: A narrative accounting of your site assessment, including the consultant name and the date of the visit, and a general overview of the consultant's report.

2.    An accounting of grant expenses, indicating totals for both consultant fee and consultant travel.

3.    Please attach a copy of the report provided to you by your consultant. 

OPTIONAL: If you would like, you may attach press releases, announcements, publications, and exhibit or program materials referring to the grant program. If you post on Facebook or Twitter about the awarded funds, please make sure to tag Greater Hudson Heritage Network (on Twitter:@theGHHN) in the posts so we may see the post.

2017 Conservation Treatment Grant Awardees have a requirement to prepare a final report on the conservation paid for with your 2017 grant.  Please note, our final report submission process is paperless. ​If you are applying to the 2018 NYSCA/GHHN Conservation Treatment Grant program, earliest receipt of your 2017 final report would be appreciated but must be received no later than June 1, 2018.

Final Report Deadlines:
If you have applied for the 2018 Conservation Treatment Grant Program, your 2017 final report must be received by June 1, 2018.

If you have not applied for the 2018 Conservation Treatment Grant Program, your 2017 final report must be received by June 30, 2018. 

You must notify GHHN by May 1, 2018 if you do not anticipate spending all your awarded funds. Any unspent funds must be received by GHHN by June 1, 2018.

Though our process is now paperless, many of the components from the old final report still remain. Some parts of the final report will be filled out in fields in the portal, and other parts of the final report will now need to be uploaded as PDF files – the conservator’s treatment report, for example. Regardless of whether or not you will be filling in fields directly or uploading documents, we highly recommend that you compose your answers offline and copy/paste them into the online form so that you have your work backed up if there is a technical issue. Please note, questions with fillable fields will not accept formatting such as bulleted lists or boldface or italics. This formatting is allowable in PDF files that you upload.
