Entities receiving financial assistance from USDA Rural Utilities Service (RUS) are required to report certain financial, operational, construction, and performance data on a quarterly and/or annual basis. The reporting requirements vary depending on the type of financial assistance that was approved for the entity. These requirements are covered in the executed legal agreements between RUS and the entity.
This page provides useful resources that ReConnect awardees can use to gain a better understanding of the ReConnect Reporting and Compliance process and requirements. The page will be updated as needed to include additional resource materials, relevant forms and documents, and other important information and updates.
