Please remember the following two items are required on publications, CDs, DVDs, brochures, software, final reports or other products that result from WERC grant activities. (See your official award letter for additional details.)

For projects funded in Federal Fiscal Year 2009 and beyond, a two-part final report is required. The components are:
- Final Summary Report—A summary of project accomplishments by goals and objectives.
- Final Accomplishment Report—A detailed report that includes a project overview; goals and objectives; literature review (if appropriate); methodology; results, discussion, and findings; summary, conclusions, and recommendations; and photographs (if appropriate).
Since these reports will be available to the public on the WERC web site at Project Information and Final Reports, the report templates must meet the formatting requirements for Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
