Grant Follow Up

Congratulations on receiving a grant from C3F! By signing the grant check, you agreed to several conditions, including providing a public announcement of the grant award, and completing some kind of grant follow up.

As the grant recipient (grantee), you will choose one of the following formats in which to complete your grant follow up: 

  • A conversation with C3F staff (could be in person at a site visit, or via phone or Zoom call), OR 
  • A 4-5 question written summary (in the online grants system)

All grant recipients will need to complete a few short steps in the online system after their grant is complete, even if the bulk of the follow up takes place as a conversation. 

If you can accommodate a site visit with C3F staff, we'd love to see your work in action! We recognize that all grant work isn’t the same and that some work may be more appropriate for site visits than others. 

Grantees received a link in their grant award letter to notify C3F staff of their preference for grant follow up. Your responses on this form help C3F staff to schedule an appropriate time to connect with you. If you need the link resent or have questions about how to choose a follow up option, contact Ashley Cousens or Megan Havrilla DeHoog.

Grant follow up must be completed by the end of the grant period, or when the grant work has been completed, whichever comes first. Depending on the grant cycle in which your award was made, the grant period may be 6 to 12 months. Most grant awards are for one year. The grantee is responsible for completing the grant follow up using the online grant software within the appropriate timeframe. Providing photos with your grant summary is always encouraged. Log in using your email address and password that you used when you submitted your grant request. If you forgot your password, you can reset it on the logon page.
