NIFA has established the NIFA Reporting System (NRS) in collaboration with Land-Grant Universities and other partners. This tool provides data management and reporting for capacity funded research projects and Extension programs.
NRS currently contains the Agricultural Research, Extension, and Education Reform Act of 1998 (AREERA) Plans of Work, Annual Reports of Accomplishments and other capacity grant data for research projects and Extension programs. Primary NRS users include Land-Grant Universities, other partner institutions, cooperating state institutions, and agency staff. To access the NRS application, click the LAUNCH button below, which will require users to complete e-Authentication prior to navigating to NRS.
NRS is managed by the Planning, Accountability and Reporting Staff (PARS).
The capacity grant reporting cycle follows the federal fiscal year (FY), from October 1st to September 30th. The table below provides information on key dates and reporting details.
