Managing Your Grant

The Managing Your Grant section of the Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC) website is intended to assist current grantees with the administration and management of their SNC grants.  The SNC has recently added a Managing Your Grant Booklet to assist grantees with all phases of the grant process.

Advance Requests
Please contact your Project Lead if you are considering an advance request. Due to limited available funds, the SNC must first work with you to determine:

1) How much advance funding is available for your project, and

2) Confirm the type of funding that will be available to you (Capital/BAB or Working Capital/non-BAB).
Once this advance request amount and type is determined, you will be asked to fill out the Advance Request Form, and explain the need for the advance in narrative form. Mail the form ATTN: (Your Project Lead) at the SNC Main Office in Auburn. It is very important for you to follow the above procedure to ensure accurate and efficient processing. Be sure to read and follow the detailed Advance Request Instructions as you fill out the Advance Request form:

Expense Reimbursement Requests
Grantees must complete and submit an approved Request for Payment form for reimbursement of project expenses under their SNC Grant Agreement.  Detailed instructions and necessary forms are provided below.

Six-Month and Final Progress Reports
Grantees must complete and submit Six-Month Progress Reports and a Final Report under their SNC Grant Agreement.  The form (you can use the same form for both Six-Month and Final Reports) and instructions are provided in the link below.

Performance Measure Reporting
Grantees must complete the project-specific Performance Measure reporting with the submission of the Final Report for the project. Performance Measures are used to track progress toward project goals and desired outcomes. For detailed performance measure descriptions click here.

Appraisal Reports Criteria
Grantees with projects that include an appraisal report  prepared for the acquisition of any land or interest therein must conform to the following minimum standards:

Department of General Services Regulations for the Submittal of Appraisal Reports to the State of California for Acquisition of Conservation Lands

If you encounter difficulties or have questions that pertain to Advance Requests or the Requests for Payment process, please send an email to Barbara Harriman or call (530) 823-4670 or toll free (877) 257-1212.
