Don’t Forget Your Annual Compliance, Certification and other Reporting Obligations!
Updated Compliance and Reporting Guidance Now Available
Are you the Authorized Representative of an organization that has received a CDFI Fund Award and/or Allocation? If so, don’t forget that in order to maintain compliance with your Assistance and/or Allocation Agreement(s) you must complete and submit the annual compliance report(s) as specified in your agreement(s).
Failure to file annual compliance and certification reports or advise the CDFI Fund of certain Material Events may result in noncompliance with your organization’s Assistance and/or Allocation Agreement(s).
The due dates to submit annual compliance report(s) vary by fiscal year-end date and type of award, as well as by the specific terms within each organization’s individual Assistance and/or Allocation Agreement. This reminder is specifically for organizations with Assistance and/or Allocation Agreements that have an upcoming report(s) due by September 30, 2019.
How to Check Your Report Date
The due dates(s) for your organization’s required report(s) can be found in the Assistance and/or Allocation Agreement(s) for your award(s) and on the Report Schedule in the Awards Management Information System (AMIS). Please review your Assistance and/or Allocation Agreement(s) to check if you are required to report at this time and for additional information about the annual compliance report requirements.
Advise the CDFI Fund of Material Events
As specified in the terms of your organization’s Assistance and/or Allocation Agreement(s), please remember that your organization is required to advise the CDFI Fund of an occurrence of a Material Event, which should be submitted via a Service Request initiated in your organization’s AMIS account. CDFI Fund awardees are required to submit a Material Events form within 30 days of the occurrence of a material event. New Market Tax Credit Program (NMTC Program) allocatees are required to submit a Material Events form within 20 days of the occurrence of a material event. Please refer to your Assistance and/or Allocation Agreements(s) for guidance regarding submission of a Material Events form.
Annual Certification Report Deadline Reminder
As mentioned in previous announcements, all certified CDFIs are required to submit Annual Certification and Data Collection Reports (ACRs) on an annual basis. CDFIs must submit their ACR, in AMIS, within 90 days of the end of their organization’s fiscal year. Those organizations newly certified during the fiscal year 2019 will not be required to submit the ACR until the 2020 reporting cycle. Please note that the Report Schedule in AMIS, mentioned above, will NOT display an organization’s ACR submission deadline date.
