Grant recipients have one year from the date of their final approval letter to request reimbursement. To request reimbursement the recipient must complete a reimbursement form, which is provided by the council. Reimbursements may be made either directly to the applicant or to third party vendors who have provided goods, materials or services to the applicant. In either case, the Shrewsbury Cultural Council must retain a copy of the documentation provided by the applicant with the application as part of the council’s records.
Shrewsbury Cultural Council should process reimbursements as they arrive to ensure timely payment of grantees. The Council should take no longer than four weeks to forward approved reimbursement requests to the municipal treasurer.
If the local council is satisfied that the project has been completed as promised, a minimum of two council members sign the form and forward it to the municipal treasurer, who will authorize the release of funds to the grantee. Progress payments may be made at the discretion of the Shrewsbury Cultural Council, but should be proportionate to the percentage of the project that has been completed. If the council is not satisfied that the project was completed as promised, the council must contact the grantee with their concerns and allow the grantee the opportunity to respond. Two council members and the grantee may work out a compromise solution, which should be finalized in writing. If a compromise cannot be agreed upon, the council must convene a quorum of Shrewsbury Cultural Council members to vote on the request and/or any compromise solution put forward by the grantee or council. The results should be reflected in the meeting minutes, and the grantee should be given final notification in writing as to the outcome of the vote.
