This is soooo friggin cool.
There is now a tool to search all Federal research grants, i.e. across the various funding agencies.
Federal RePORTER awaits!

Awesome!! Thanks for posting.
Weird you can't search the current fiscal year.
It's in "alpha" according to Rockey.
This only seems to index the first PI on an award -- which is somewhat problematical given how collaborative research is the "in thing" these days.
I don't think it is in finished form yet, JB.
They are asking for feedback on the page. Fire away with the issues that you find!
Dude, you just jizzed, didn't you?
Berg just called it a "wonk tool". Seems about right.

A caveat. NSF often funds multiyear grants out of a single fiscal year so that there is no equivalent of a non-competing renewal (Type 5) NIH award. Thus, the number of investigators listed as receiving awards from NSF in a given year substantially underestimates the number of investigators who actually have NSF funding.
Ah. Thanks for the caveat. Is it fixable do you think?
This is pretty cool. I wish it had DoD research grants as well. Those are often much harder to get information on than NSF.
DrugMonkey is an NIH-funded researcher who blogs about careerism in science. And occasionally about the science of drug use.
