The due date for the report is 45 days after the close of the quarterly reporting period (for example, for the quarter ending 12/31/05 , due date was 2/14/06. In addition, grantees are required to submit a SF-269, Financial Status Report, within 90 days of the grant termination date. Currently, these reports are still being received in hard copy format.
