Reporting Guidelines

Progress and Final Reports are a required condition upon accepting Sea Grant funds. These reports are vital to convey the achievements of your projects to NOAA-National Sea Grant, state, local and other sponsors and, when appropriate, to the general public.

Annual Progress Reports are due one month (23 days) after the completion of each 12-month grant period. The Final Report is due two months (60 days) after the project end date. Information for both is submitted using the same electronic form at the link in the upper right.

Have the following information available before you fill in the form:

  • Changes in objective, methodology and rationale
  • Accomplishments/findings to date
  • Benefits
  • Presentations – including number of attendees
  • Significant interactions with other agencies
  • Media contacts
  • Students supported – including undergraduate and graduate students
  • Publications – including journal articles or outreach materials

Integrated Assessments

In addition to the electronic progress and final reports, Integrated Assessment projects are required to complete an Integrated Assessment Report. This must be submitted before the project end date so that Michigan Sea Grant can facilitate a peer review process.
