USDA Unveils New Tool to Track Federally Funded Investments

Submitted by Kris Boone,

USDA has released two new data dashboards that allow users the unprecedented ability to access high-level data about NIFA’s agricultural research funding investments and track the status of their grant applications. 

USDA stakeholders and partners, members of the media and the public can now immediately access, download and save data on all NIFA competitive and capacity funds granted since fiscal year 2018.  This tool offers users the ability to pull information on funding investments by research program and grant type, congressional district, recipient (including Land-grant, minority-serving institutions, Tribal, Hispanic-serving Institutions, and Extension), and other focused searches.

The NIFA Grant Funding Dashboard allows users to search for information related to requirements, waivers, and the amount of match funding provided by recipient type and award. Users can also explore a funding map to find NIFA funding obligations by states and congressional districts.   The NIFA Application Status Dashboard enables users to quickly check the status of their application using their assigned tracking number.
