Gravel Road


Report used to summarize a completed project. Contains a summary of both financial information and the practices implemented on the project. It is recommended that conservation districts and grant recipients jointly complete this form as part of the final inspection.

Project Completion Report Instructions

The following instructions pertain to the Dirt, Gravel and Low Volume Maintenance Program Project Completion form.  These instructions are to act as a guide only. 

It is strongly recommended Grant Recipient and Conservation District representatives hold an on-site meeting to complete this report.

General Information:

  • Contract # – The contract number as assigned by the DGLVR GIS Mapper.
  • County – The County where the completed project is located.
  • Municipality – The Municipality (township, borough, or city) where the completed project is located.
  • Date – The date the Project Completion Report was completed.
  • Project Participant – The recipient of the Dirt, Gravel, and Low Volume Road Maintenance grant.
  • Funded Site ID – The site identifier for the road maintenance work funded.  This identifier was determined by the Conservation District when the contract was awarded.
  • Road Name / ID Number – The name and identification number of the road in question.  List both if available.

Dirt, Gravel and Low Volume Funds:  This section only includes actual grant costs paid for by the Program through the Conservation District.  Grant Recipients must provide receipts.

  • Project Commitments:

A: Contract Amount –This is the amount agreed on within the signed contract between the Conservation District and the Grant Recipient

B: Amendments – Any amendments to the above contract amount. (if applicable)

C : Total Committed – Contract Amount + Amendments.  The total Program funds committed to the project.

  • Project Expenditures:

D: Materials – The actual cost of all the materials funded by the Program grant.

E: Equipment – The actual cost of all the equipment funded by the Program grant.

F: Labor – The actual cost of all the labor funded by the Program grant.

G: Engineering – The actual engineering or related design costs funded by the Program Grant. Note this is limited to 10% of the total contract value, or line C above.

H: Total Expenditures – Materials + Equipment + Labor + Engineering.  This is the total expenditures of the project that are funded by the Dirt, Gravel, and Low Volume Road Maintenance Program grant.  It is permissible to estimate the breakdown of materials, equipment, engineering, and labor if needed (such as when a contractor completes the work), but “Line H: Total Expenditures” must reflect the total funding paid by the Conservation District to the Grant Recipient.

In-Kind Contributions: In-kind contributions are project costs incurred by the Grant Recipient that are NOT reimbursed through the Program grant.  Receipts are not required.

I: Materials – The total cost of grant recipient materials deemed to be in-kind contributions.

J: Equipment – The total cost of the grant recipient equipment deemed to be in-kind contributions.

K: Labor – The total cost of the grant recipient labor deemed to be in-kind contributions.

L: Engineering – The engineering or related design costs paid by the grant recipient as in-kind.

M: Other Sources – The total contributions from any other sources besides the grant recipient (other grants, etc.) deemed to be in-kind contributions.  List these sources in the space provided.

N: Total In-Kind Value – Materials + Equipment + Labor + Engineering + Other Sources.  This is the total cost deemed to be in-kind contributions.

Project Cost Summary:

O: Total Project Value – Total Expenditures + Total In-Kind.  This is the overall total value of the funded road project.

Additional Project Notes:

  • Any additional project information that should be included in this report.

Finalizing the Project Completion Report:

  • Conservation District Rep. – The signature of the Conservation District representative.
  • Date – The date the Conservation District representative signed the Project Completion Report.
  • Project Participant Rep. – The signature of the Project Participant representative.
  • Date – The date the Project Participant representative signed the Project Completion Report.
