Manage Your Award
Successful applicants to MEPI announcements will be issued a Financial Assistance Award document, which sets forth the amount of funds granted; the terms and conditions of the grant; the effective date of the grants; the budget period for which initial support will be given; the non-Federal share to be provided (if applicable); and the total project period for which support is contemplated.
PAYMENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
Federal Assistance funds are distributed to awardees via the Payment Management System (PMS) operated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
FINANCIAL REPORTING REQUIREMENTS
Successful applicants will be required to submit a Federal Financial report (FFR SF-425) at the end of each quarter. The FFR SF-425 has two major components: 1) Cash Management Report, and 2) Financial Status Report. A final financial report will be due 90 days after the end of an award performance period.
