All grantees are required to report on GEER funds received under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act; the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations (CRRSA) Act. Grantees must submit an annual report describing how the State and subrecipients used the awarded funds during the performance period.
Similar to CARES Act Year 1 annual reporting, grantees will use the Annual Report Data Collection Tool to submit the State report. For information on account registration and when the tool will open for data entry, please visit https://covid-relief-data.ed.gov/grantee-help.
