About Research Spending & Results

Research Spending & Results, which can be accessed by the general public, gives insight into federally funded research by providing information about how federal research dollars are being spent, what research is being performed, and how the outcomes of research are benefitting society.  Currently, information is available for NSF and NASA awards, with information being updated daily for NSF and monthly for NASA..
