NIFA Launches ezFedGrants

This fall, NIFA is launching a phased roll out of ezFedGrants, a new grants management system. NIFA and other USDA agencies are adopting ezFedGrants as part of a USDA-wide grants modernization effort to lower costs, streamline the award process, reduce errors, and provide self-service capabilities for applicants and grantees. 

NIFA staff will begin to use ezFedGrants to process all 2017 capacity program applications starting in fall 2016. Fiscal year 2017 capacity grant applicants will use ezFedGrants to check their application status (starting in November 2016). Institutions also will use ezFedGrants to submit their Federal Financial Report (SF425) electronically when they are due in December 2017. In the future, ezFedGrants will be used for more grant management functions.

Visit NIFA website for ezFedGrants training and informational tools for grantees transition to the new system. If you have any questions about ezFedGrants, please send an email to
