Grants Reporting and Tracking System V4.1

1.0

The Grants Reporting and Tracking System (GRTS) is the primary tool for management and oversight of the national Nonpoint Source (NPS) Pollution Control Program. GRTS enables EPA and States to report on the accomplishments achieved with the use of NPS grant funds. Under Clean Water Act Section 319(h), EPA awards grants for implementation of state NPS management programs. State grant recipients are required to report annually in GRTS their progress in meeting milestones, including reductions of NPS pollutant loadings and on improvements to water quality achieved by implementing NPS pollution control practices. EPA tracks the pollutant load reduction data in GRTS against three NPS Program performance measures. GRTS is a Web-enabled data system that pulls grant information from EPA's centralized grants and financial databases and allows grant recipients (or subrecipients) to report detailed information on the individual projects or activities funded under each grant. GRTS users have the flexibility to enter data using the website or by uploading data directly to the database via xml. The NPS Program is continually improving GRTS and seeking ways to leverage other EPA investments. GRTS houses a separate grants database for the Wetlands program (the Wetlands Grants Database, or WGD). GRTS is also part of the WATERS infrastructure and utilizes the GIS data and services available in the Reach Address Database.
