Final report

You must submit a final report for your project within two months of the project’s completion via th LUF subsidiy portal.

Applicants who got a grant in 2019 or 2020, please use the final report form for this. The final report should contain a number of elements, which can be attached to the form: 

  • a list of expenses (please use the expense form)
  • a descriptive report 
  • photos of the project.

See the Criteria final report to find out what you need to include in your descriptive report. The final report will determine the exact sum that is disbursed and will allow the LUF to show donors and potential donors what their support has achieved. The report and photos will become the property of the LUF and may be used for publication purposes.
