DHSES E-Grants Help

Property Report Module

The Property Report module contains reports of any purchased property or equipment associated with the grant funds (equipment is defined as durable [non-consumable] goods with a value of $5,000 or more). 

Subrecipients can view, enter, submit and print an Equipment Inventory Report pertaining to grant funded property purchases associated with their project during the life of the grant. The DHSES staff can view a subrecipient's property report.
