Reimbursement Form

A request for reimbursement form needs to be completed as it relates to the line item budget as approved. Copies of invoices/receipts and product samples must accompany the reimbursement form. Invoices must provide detail of services and goods provided including the date of the service, cost per unit, and a total cost. For radio or television spots, an affidavit of broadcast times must be part of the invoice to assure the services were received. Invoices for printed material should include a distribution statement. Attach samples of all products to corresponding invoices. Total amount of invoices/receipts may never exceed approved funds. Failure to supply the invoices/receipts will void the grant award. No exceptions.  

If a grant is approved, the WCVB agrees to reimburse for expenses described within the application based on compliance with all policies and guidelines set forth in the program, as well as those established by State Statutes. Any expenses deemed by the WCVB to not be allowed, by either the policies of the grant program, or statutes governing the use of Lodging Tax Funds, will be denied.
