NIFA-19-001 Official NIFA Identifier

The official NIFA identifier was updated in November 2020 and is now comprised of the USDA logo with NIFA signature lockup. Per NIFA regulations and guidelines, it is expected that grantees use NIFA’s official identifier in publications, posters, websites and presentations resulting from their award. The updated official NIFA identifier should be used on all print and digital materials moving forward.


  • The integrity of the complete identifier should be maintained in all uses. Additions and deletions to the identifier are not permitted.
  • To maintain clear identification, the identifier should always appear proportionally, isolated from other elements, such as titles or graphic devices. It should not be obscured in any way or reproduced against strongly patterned backgrounds that would tend to impair its recognition.
  • When it is used in conjunction with symbols of other public and private sector partners, the NIFA identifier should have equal placement.
  • Never enlarge a .png or .jpg file beyond 100%.
