Competitive Grants Reporting in REEport


Website for USDA competitive grants reporting

To request a template for writing your report; contact Fill out the template, then copy and paste your information into REEport.

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 entering your information into REEport, you will need to click on "Submit for Review". That will place your report in the "Pending Submission" folder, where AES staff can review and submit the report to NIFA.

Detailed instructions for completing your reports can be found on this website, under the "Reporting Guidance" tab in the left sidebar and in the Guide for Project Directors.

Annual Reports

Annual reports for USDA-NIFA grants can be completed up to 90 days preceding through 90 days after the anniversary of the project start date. 

Final Reports 

Final reports may be submitted up to 90 days preceding through 120 days after the project end date. 

In REEport, final reports are much the same as annual reports, with the same data fields and questions. However, there are three items of note:

1. The information entered into a final report should capture results for the entire project duration, not just the final reporting year. Annual progress reports cover only one reporting period/year.
2. The number of FTEs entered on the final report: You should report FTEs for the most recent year, the same as you would if you were filling out an Annual Progress Report.
3. Products/Other Products (including publications): For the final report, include only those items that have not been previously reported.
