Hatch and Grants
Hatch, Animal Health, and McIntire-Stennis Research Projects
The five-year Hatch project initiations, annual reports, and final reports are managed electronically via NIFA’s new Reporting System (NRS). NRS is NIFA’s formula project initiation and reporting system, building on and replacing the REEport system. The NRS Website can be accessed by clicking here. ARGE will submit new Hatch projects electronically through NRS, however faculty will need to prepare online and submit an Annual Progress Report plus a Final Report at the end of the 5-year period.
The office of Agricultural Research is responsible for ensuring that Purdue University faculty members comply with Hatch peer-review procedures and for the quality of reporting submitted to NRS.
Grant project initiations, annual reports and final reports are managed electronically via the Research, Education, and Extension project online reporting tool (REEport). REEport is NIFA’s grant project initiation and reporting system, building on and replacing the CRIS web forms system. It implements the Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR), a standard progress report format that all Federal research agencies are required to use for research grant reporting. Access REEport Website.
