    • Invoicing: Grantees received 70% of the awarded funds as an advance payment. LEAs may invoice for expenditures made over the initial 70% advance at any time and no later than March 15, 2022. To invoice, expenditures and match must first be reported in NOVA. Invoices should be emailed to crc [ahtsym] scccd [dhotsym] edu.
    • Unspent Grant Funds: "We know that due to the disruptions of COVID many grantees were unable to fully spend their grants. Any funds not expended nor encumbered during the performance period must be returned by the grantee. Funds that lack the required match must also be returned. In cases where less than 70% of grant funds are expended, grantees will be required to return by March 15, 2022 the difference between the advance payment and the expended amount. Returned funds will be carried forward to Round 5, enlarging the amount of funds available for K12 SWP grants next year." (email from regional chair on 12-21-21)
