Please note: If you have a Restoration and Rehabilitation grant from the 2018 round onwards, your grants administrator will send the planning and reporting templates to you.
If you have a project that was funded before the 2018 funding round, please use the following templates.
Monitoring and evaluating
A project (monitoring and evaluation) plan (DOC 133KB) maps out the activities you’ll complete and how these will produce the results you aim to achieve through your project.
Your grant application will contain much of the information you’ll need, so this is your starting point. The instructions in the planning template will also help you.
Project measures table
The project measures table template (XLSX 69KB) allows you to set key targets and then record your progress, so you can quickly check how you’re tracking and record your achievements.
You’ll need to update and submit the project measures table every time you report on your project’s progress.
Progress reports and final report
As you move through your project you’ll have to submit progress reports. These will outline what you’ve achieved and what you’ll do next.
Progress reports are reviewed by technical experts who can ensure you’re on the right track and give you feedback or advice. After your report is reviewed and accepted we’ll pay your next grant instalment.
When your project finishes you’ll have to submit a final report that says what it has achieved.
Use the progress and final reporting form (DOC 171KB) for these reports.
You must submit an updated and authorised financial report with all your progress reports. You also need to submit a certified financial report as a part of your final project report.
If you need to rearrange your project’s budget, you should apply for a budget variation.
The forms you’ll need are on the financial reporting page.
The below documents will assist you with planning and monitoring your project.
You may also have to submit some other documents or evidence. They'll be listed in the grant agreement we send you.
Where to send reports
Email reports and other documents to firstname.lastname@example.org (50MB limit).
Please acknowledge the funding you’ve received from the Trust in all publications and materials related to your project. We ask that you say:
This project has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust.
