Apply Now Using Workspace

To apply for a federal funding opportunity, you can create a workspace and add your team of grant applicants to the workspace. The Apply Now Using Workspace page allows you to quickly create a workspace if you already know the funding opportunity number or opportunity package ID. Read the What Is Workspace? help article for more information about applying.

How to Create a Workspace

  1. Login and access the Applicant Center page.

Note: Only users with the Manage Workspace role can create a workspace.

  1. Click the Apply Now link under the Grant Applications heading.

  2. Enter either the Funding Opportunity Number field or the Opportunity Package ID field that corresponds to the grant you wish to apply for. If you do not know this information, go to the Search Grants tab to find an opportunity to apply for.

  3. Create a descriptive application name in the Application Filing Name field.

  4. Click the Create Workspace button.

Note: If your organization does not have a DUNS Number in SAM and you attempt to create a workspace for a package with DUNS forms, you will receive an Alert message stating the following: “Cannot create Workspace. This Opportunity Package is only available to organizations with a DUNS.” If you receive this Alert message, please first check if there is an opportunity package containing UEI forms. If you do not see a package with UEI forms, reach out to the grantor contact listed in the funding opportunity announcement for guidance on next steps.

Upon a successful creation, you will be directed to the Manage Workspace page. Refer to the Manage Workspace help article for more information on applying using Workspace. You may also create a workspace from the View Grant Opportunity page. You cannot create a workspace for a multi-project package.

Note: If more than one application package fits this search criteria, you will be prompted with a list. Click the Select link for the correct application package.

Also note that creating a workspace is an action that will be recorded in the Activity Tab as "Created."
