Workspace Participants may download individual PDF forms from within the Forms tab of the Manage Workspace page. Downloading the PDF form allows you to view or fill out the individual form, but it does not prevent other users from downloading and uploading the same form. You must Lock the form after downloading it if you wish to prevent other users from uploading another version of the form.
How to Download a Form
In the Forms tab on the Manage Workspace page, click the desired form’s Download link under the Actions column.
The Participant will be prompted to “Lock” the form so that no other Participant may edit and upload the form. Clicking the Yes button will lock the form and log the activity under the Activity tab.
The form is downloaded following the process and settings of your internet browser. Follow the prompts, if applicable, to download and save the document.
For assurances and read-only forms that do not require data entry, clicking the Download link functions as your assurance and certification that you have read and will operate in accordance with all the requirements contained in the form. After clicking the Download link, the Form Status will change to Passed. You are not required to upload the form since no new data is added to the form.
Save and download behavior may differ based on which browser is being used to download the individual PDF form. For assistance with Adobe Reader, review the Adobe Software Compatibility page in the Applicants tab on Grants.gov. Many web browsers open PDFs using their own, built-in PDF readers; however, none of these are compatible with Grants.gov PDF forms. You must use the webforms functionality or use compatible Adobe software.
Please use your browser Help icon for assistance with downloading files to your computer. Some browsers ask you to specify the location to save the file once you click to download. Other browsers automatically save to your default download location. Below are helpful links for common web browsers.
If you are unable to download a form in a workspace, one of the following issues may have occurred:
If the Download link is inactivated, check the Include in Package column to ensure that the form has been selected for inclusion in the application package.
If the form has been removed from the application package by the grantor before the Participant has refreshed the workspace, you will receive an alert message that will prevent you from accessing the form.
