Grant Cancellation

Minnesota Historical Society (MNHS) has the responsibility to manage public grant funds in accordance with Minnesota Statutes, Federal regulations, the grant guidelines, and the grant agreement (contract). MNHS is also expected to administer grant programs honestly, objectively, and to public benefit. MNHS expects grantees to follow the stipulations, conditions, approved scopes of work, and approved budgets documented as stated in the grant agreement (contract). Grantees can expect Minnesota Historical Society to provide assistance if a grantee has questions about the requirements of the grant agreement and when there are unforeseen circumstances.
Minnesota Historical Society has the right to withhold, cancel, or revoke in whole or in part awarded grants if a grantee or applicant:
  • cancels, suspends, or significantly changes the scope and activities of a funded project
  • fails to comply with the terms of the grant manual, contract, or agreement
  • owes an overdue final report for a previously-received grant
  • fails to complete the project in a timely manner
  • demonstrates inadequate financial management or oversight
Grantees that fail to respond to repeated requests to return signed agreements or contracts or fail to respond to repeated requests for required information will be given a 30-day notice prior to revocation of the grant award, in whole or in part, or cancellation of the grant agreement. Grantees that breach the terms of the grant agreement will be given proposed remedies to ensure successful completion of the project. These remedies may include revocation of portions of the grant award.
