ETA-9130 Financial Reporting System

ETA awards approximately $8 billion in formula and discretionary grants each year to an average of 1,000 recipients. Financial reports for each of these grants must be submitted quarterly on the ETA-9130 Financial Report through the e-Grants Federal Reporting System, an online ETA-9130 reporting system for recipients to enter and certify quarterly financial data. The ETA-9130 reporting instructions are the primary sources for detailed instructions to complete and submit financial reports. The appropriate program rules, regulations, and terms and conditions of the grant award may also contain specific reporting guidelines, additionally to the resources listed below.
