Outputs: Report outputs completed during the reporting period that contribute to the goals and objectives of the project (do not include publications here, they are to be reported separately in the block below). Do not include findings or conclusions that have been reached; these are to be reported separately as changes in knowledge in the outcomes section. Include a description of how the results have been disseminated to communities of interest or how the product is being shared. If this is a final report, give a brief summary of the most significant outputs and dissemination activities for the entire life of the project. This narrative is required for all projects.
