Apply for Grants using Workspace

Workspace is the space where you work on your grant application. Workspace allows a team of registered Grants.gov applicants to use a shared online space for completing individual forms and submitting the final application. These forms can be filled out simultaneously by different users, instead of exchanging a single PDF package file via email or a flash drive.

Here are some ways that Workspace could benefit you:

reuse old forms

Reuse Old Forms

Individual forms can be reused across multiple workspaces. Update form fields as needed and save you or your team from having to fill out the same form over and over again.

Form Data Cascades

Key applicant information also cascades across all forms in a workspace if the SF424 form is completed first, which will save you time. Enter your information once, and it will populate in every other workspace form.

Detect Errors Earlier

Improved error-checking allows applicants to catch and correct errors earlier resulting in fewer rejected submissions.

Online Help

When you use Workspace, help is always just a click away. Locate the nearest question mark icon and you will be taken to a context sensitive help article that explains the page or window in front of you.

Online Forms Coming in 2017

This feature will only be available in Workspace. Stay tuned to the Grants.gov Community Blog for updates on online forms development.
