Action Required for Applicants Missing FY2021 Required Documentation

In October 2019, Grants Management notified all applicant lead agencies regarding state requirements needed before FY2021 grants can be issued. DESE is still missing about one-third of the documentation from applicants. Click here to review the memo and required forms.

Please review the Missing Standard Contract List Download Excel Document to determine whether we are missing information for your applicant lead agency. Not having this documentation on file means we cannot issue any FY2021 grants to the effected applicants until it is received. This can and will impact grant start dates. This list will be updated online weekly as we get responses.

If you are not on the list, it means we have all the documentation needed.

A reminder that DESE is "opting in" for the notary on the CASL form, but we realize that during this time it may be difficult to obtain a notary seal. We can accept CASL forms without the notary, temporarily, provided it accompanies a signed original Standard Contract Form. The notary can be sent in later when access to such things becomes available. If able to obtain the notary seal now, please do so. The CASL form is used any time pertinent secure information is changed in the applicant's vendor profile setup, such as bank account information, so it is important that we have the CASL form with a notary seal and sign off when possible.
