National Institutes of Health (NIH) RePORTER
The Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tool Expenditures and Reports (RePORTER) provides abstracts and detailed budget information, along with research results and products like patents and publications, for funded projects from 1985 to present. RePORTER replaced the CRISP system.
U.S. Department of Education (DoEd) Grant Awards and Institute of Education Sciences (IES) awards
Recent DoEd awards are announced on this page. The easiest way to find a list of awards for a particular program is to use the "Awards" link in the blue box at the top of the program page (example). If you want to search by some other criterion, such as the recipient location, you can use the USASpending.gov Advanced Data Search. Choose "Grants" under "Spending Type," the fiscal year(s) of interest under "Fiscal Year," and "Department of Education" under "Awarding Agency" (near the bottom of the form). You can then add additional search criteria, such as the recipient state or the CFDA number for a grant program. (CFDA numbers for Department of Education programs begin with 84.)
Grant award histories for Institute of Education Sciences (IES) programs can be found in the IES Funded Research Grants and Contracts database. (IES awards are also listed in the USASpending.gov database, but the project abstracts in the IES Research Grants and Contracts database are more detailed.)
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) IGMS
Use the Integrated Grants Management System (IGMS) Search to search the database of EPA awards by applicant name, award date, grant program, or geographic location.
National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Online Grant Search

The IMLS supports libraries and museums. This database contains award abstracts dating back to 1997.
U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Award Search
The Office of Science Award Search provides very brief records about grants, cooperative agreements and interagency awards funded by the Office of Science. It does not contain information on DOE national laboratory awards; check individual program offices' websites for this information.
U.S. Department of Justice Grant Awards lists
Search grant awards by fiscal year and location, or browse grant awards by solicitation for these program offices: Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA); Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS); Community Capacity Development Office (CCDO); Drug Courts Program Office (DCPO); National Institute of Justice (NIJ); Office for Victims of Crime (OVC); Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP); Sex Offender Sentencing, Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering and Tracking Office (SMART).

Research.gov Research Spending and Results database (NSF & NASA award records)
This partnership of federal research-oriented grant making agencies is led by the National Science Foundation. The Research Spending and Results database contains active awards for the National Science Foundation (1994 to date) and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (2007 to date).
Brief reports on grants, contracts, and other federal awards from all agencies. Useful for obtaining information about R&D contracts for agencies that do not provide award databases (e.g., the National Transportation Safety Board), but records are brief, so individual agencies' awards databases are more useful for detailed information on grants.
