Reports for USDA-NIFA grants on the anniversary reporting cycle can be completed up to 90 days preceding the anniversary date through 90 days after. Early submission is appreciated.
Results reports on Capacity projects (Hatch, Hatch Multi-state, McIntire Stennis, Animal Health) can be submitted at any time, however, at least one result report must be submitted before the annual deadline, set by the Ag Experiment Station staff, firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may request a template to use for writing your report; contact email@example.com. You can then just copy and paste your text into your report.
Instructions for completing your grant reports can be found by selecting the sections in the "Annual Progress Reports" drop down menu to the left of your screen. Another resource for this is the REEport Guide for Project Directors.
Detailed instructions for completing your report can be found on this website, under the "Annual Progress Reports" tab, and in the Guide for Project Directors.
IMPORTANT: Please write for an educated but non-scientific audience. Keep in mind that not only scientists, but administrators, state and federal officials, and legislative officials read and use these reports. They are made available to the public worldwide via CRIS. The quality of the information provided to readers reflects strongly on the research, the investigator(s), and the institution, and has a decided influence on State and Federal levels of research funding.
When you are finished, you should "Submit for Review". That will place your report in the "Pending submission" folder, where we will know it is ready for administrative action.
