Welcome to the “new” Grant Applicant/Awardee Technical Assistance Sessions (GAATA). In 2024, NIFA is organizing four virtual sessions – two each in grants development and grants management – to help enhance access and effectiveness of the agency’s programs. 

The first session focused on allowable and unallowable costs. Panelists from NIFA's Office of Grants and Financial Management and the agency's Program institutes responded to pre-submitted as well as live questions. To help plan the initial presentation by the panelists, attendees were requested to submit questions during registration. The registration is open to all NIFA applicants, awardees, and others interested in the agency’s funding programs.

Each session will be ninety minutes. NIFA staff address pre-submitted questions first and then participants get the opportunity to ask questions. The sessions are not be recorded, and are in webinar mode so that questions can be asked anonymously through Zoom's Q-and-A feature. If you have any questions or concerns, please email

Your feedback is important to us.
