Annual PPR Resources
The PPR is due July 30 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time annually (including in the final grant year) and is developed in NIRS. Any changes to objectives and timelines must be noted in the workplan updates in Part 1A of the PPR. Any changes in goals must be addressed directly with your project officer, and typically require a new application. Completion of the PPR in NIRS does not automatically result in upload to Grant Solutions (ACL’s grant management module); you must complete that step after the final PPR is emailed to you from NIRS.

Final 5-year Report Resources
The UCEDD 5-year Final Report is due September 29 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time, 90 days after the end of each 5-year core grant cycle. If a no-cost extension is approved for the final year of the core grant, this deadline is extended accordingly (be sure to confirm new due date with your project officer). Include your grant number on all reports submitted. All financial and programmatic reports must be submitted to ACL through Grant Solutions before the grant close-out is final. Any outstanding financial and/or programmatic reports can be submitted with the 5-year Final Report. Final reports must include the following:
- The Five Year Closeout Report – The five year closeout report was built into NIRS following the finalization of the 2020 reporting template. Similar to the annual PPR, this report can be developed within NIRS and exported to a designated contact's email address in pdf format. This exported pdf should be uploaded to Grant Solutions to complete submission. A Five Year Closeout Report Guidebook and Roll Out Webinar and Demo Archive are available to provide guidance on completing this report in NIRS.
- A Final Financial Status Report, SF425
- Property Inventory and Disposition Statement, SF428 (PDF)
An updated reporting template was put in place in 2020. This consolidated template includes the program performance reporting requirements for both the annual reports and the 5 year closeout reports.
The UCEDD Program Performance Report (PPR) is due July 30 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time each year and is developed in the National Information Reporting System (NIRS) online database managed by AUCD/URC.
The UCEDD 5-year Final Report is due September 29 at 11:59 pm Eastern Time, 90 days after the end of each 5-year core grant cycle. UCEDDs in their final year of their grant have a heavy lift, as they are required to submit a core grant application, a PPR, and a 5-year Final Report all in the same year.
