Acknowledgment of Funding
Proper acknowledgement of your public funding in published articles, manuscripts, dissertations, posters, presentations, inventions, patents, and press releases is critical for the success of the agency’s programs. Please use the following language to acknowledge NIFA support in such publications, as appropriate:
This work is/was supported by the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
Press Announcements and Media Interviews
Recommended awards should not be announced in any manner by a grantee until approval is obtained by NIFA’s communication office. This applies to press releases, newsletters, press interviews, and web or social media postings. In many cases, the Secretary of Agriculture may want to personally announce the award.
NIFA grant awardees are requested to coordinate all public announcements with NIFA’s Communication Staff. Simultaneous announcement by NIFA and the grantee are preferred.
The awardee is responsible for acknowledging NIFA support during news media interviews that discuss work supported by NIFA.
