Frequently Asked Questions
Question: How do I submit a grant expenditure report?
Answer: After a budget is submitted into ASSIST and approved by California Department of Education (CDE), grant expenditures are reported in ASSIST. Once the grantee has submitted the quarterly expenditures, all required expenditure reports are automatically generated in ASSIST one day after the end of the quarterly reporting period. To view the grant’s required expenditure report(s), log onto ASSIST; click the appropriate grant identification link. All required reports will be displayed under the Reports Due tab. All reports listed under Reports Due must be submitted to ensure good standing and timely payments. Once a report is submitted to the CDE, they will be displayed under the Report History tab for your historical reference. For further assistance, please call your regional fiscal analyst. The list of the CDE fiscal analysts and the region(s) to which they are assigned is posted on the CDE Regional Technical Assistance Contacts web page.
