Abstract: The SF-270 Request for Advance or Reimbursement form is used by grant awardees to request financial assistance funds for the purpose of reimbursement or for advance of funds.

Need and Proposed Use of the Information: The SF-270 Request for Advance or Reimbursement form is used by grant awardees in post-award financial activities related to Federal financial assistance.

Likely Respondents: Federal financial assistance awardees.

Burden Statement: Burden in this context means the time expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide the information requested. This includes the time needed to review instructions, to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information, to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information, and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

HHS estimates that the form will take 1 hour to complete each form.
