President Donald Trump signed into law H.R. 150, the Grant Reporting Efficiency and Agreements Transparency (GREAT) Act, sponsored by Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC) and Jimmy Gomez (D-CA).

Under the GREAT Act, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) will simplify the federal grant reporting process by enacting a government-wide reporting system for federal grant recipients – building a more accessible, data-driven federal reporting system, and also allows the general public to see first-hand how federal dollars are being allocated.

The GREAT Act first passed the House this Congress on January 17th and was subsequently amended and passed by unanimous consent in the U.S. Senate on October 21st.

The House adopted the Senate’s changes on December 16th, and it was signed into law by President Trump on December 30th.
