What do our impact statements look like?


Our Impact Statements are two-page summaries of Hatch Multistate research projects activities and their impacts on knowledge, behavior, or social, economic, or environmental conditions. 

Our impact statements use plain language, bold layouts, photos, illustrations, icons, and other visuals.

Each impact statement includes information about project funding and a list of participating universities.

How do we write our impact statements?

Each of our Impact Statements is based on the information in that project's annual reports, which are available in the NIMSS database for Hatch Multistate projects. 


An Impact Statement is typically developed at the end of a project's five-year funding cycle.

Each impact statement is reviewed by the participating project members and revised to ensure an accurate overview of the projects and its impacts.
