Why was my claim denied?

The most common reasons claims are denied are: (1) the Statement of Grant Award (SOGA) has not been signed and returned to DCJS; (2) there is a special condition/encumbrance on the award; (3) the financial and programmatic reporting requirements have not been fulfilled; (4) the amount requested exceeded what was available; (5) the amount requested exceeds the reported expenditures; (6) the award period has passed and closeout was initiated.
