The RPPR is used by grantees to submit progress reports to NIH on their grant awards. This page provides an overview of the types of RPPRs and provides resources to help you understand how to submit a progress report.
Progress reports document grantee recipient accomplishments and compliance with terms of award. There are three types of RPPRs, all of which use the NIH RPPR Instruction Guide.
There is no RPPR form available for download. Submit RPPR data through the eRA Commons. The links for each type of RPPR are accessed through the Commons Status tab. The Interim RPPR link will also be accessed through the Commons Status tab. It will appear one day after the project segment end date, but before it has moved to closeout. The Final RPPR link will become available through the closeout module once the grant is eligible for closeout.
Only the project director/principal investigator (PD/PI) or their PD/PI delegate can initiate RPPRs. For multi-PD/PI grants only the Contact PI or the Contact PD/PI’s delegate can initiate the RPPR.
Signing officials must submit the RPPR for non-SNAP awards (including the Interim or Final RPPR). For SNAP awards only, the PD/PI is delegated the ability to submit directly to NIH.
Follow the instructions in the RPPR User Guide to submit the RPPR, Interim RPPR or Final RPPR. The User Guide includes instructions for how to submit your RPPRs in the eRA Commons.
