Federal Grants Portfolio

Lowering barriers across the government grants ecosystem to get results to everyday people.

About our approach

The CARES, ARPA, and IIJA legislation responding to the COVID-19 pandemic significantly increased federal funding available for many public programs. However, the scale of the funding also brought processing challenges for the cities and states administering these programs.

USDR has created a portfolio of tools to help government administrators efficiently report on Federal grants, saving time and money, and helping to assure that benefits flowed easily to those organizations and individuals most in need.

“The work the USDR team did for grants tracking and funding opportunity tracking easily saved the state thousands of hours. I think for me the most impressive aspect of the USDR engagement was the full-spectrum analysis approach… It wasn’t just looked at from the technical or compliance perspective but also UX design, ease of use, and maintenance.”

“The Grants Reporter has been a huge help to the State of Ohio in compiling reporting for the U.S. Treasury on the use of Coronavirus Relief Funds. Ohio has over 45 different projects that have been administered by 20 different state agencies. The Grants Reporter allowed state agencies to upload their reporting to the tool independently and was seamless in creating the master report.
