CAUTION: The legacy PDF application package will be retired December 31, 2017. Grants.gov recommends applying with Workspace now.
The following instructions explain how to download an application from Grants.gov. Downloading a grant application package allows you to complete it offline and route it through your organization for review before submitting. Before downloading, you need to ensure your Adobe software version is compatible with Grants.gov.
Instructions on how to open and use the forms in the application package appear on the application package cover sheet. Agency specific instructions are also available for download when you download your application package, which include required information for your submission.
Awarding agencies can post single-project and multi-project application packages in Grants.gov. To download either a single- or multi-project application package, follow the steps below, then navigate to the subsequent single- or multi-project download instructions.
