This reporting may be done either on the face of the financial statements, or in a schedule attached to the financial statements. Any fund balance remaining at the end of the grant period shall be refunded to the LSC at submission of the audit report. Case Service Reporting In times of crisis, the immediate needs of victims supersede the need to adhere to the recipient’s established priorities and recipients confronted by natural disasters generally dispense with the stated priorities to respond to the most pressing needs of their clients. Depending on the extent of the disaster and the impact it has on the recipient’s case activities, the recipient may find that it has processed a substantial number of cases outside its normal priorities and the case reporting would reflect this. To avoid a distorted picture when disaster cases are reported in the regular CSRs, LSC requires that there be separate case reporting for disaster related cases for which emergency funding was provided. Periodic Progress Reports If requested, the recipient shall make periodic reports to LSC on the progress being made by the recipient in the completion of the disaster relief project(s). Dated: January 6, 2009. Victor M. Fortuno, Vice President & General Counsel. [FR Doc.
