How to Submit Your Grant Application Electronically on Grants.gov
9 of 9 in Series: The Essentials of Finding and Applying for a Grant
Grants.gov is the main gateway for federal e-grants — and one of the most comprehensive e-grants systems. The Grants.gov website makes it easy to go about the process of submitting your grant application without all of the stamps.
The Submit button on the application package cover page becomes active after you download the application package, complete all required forms, attach all required documents, and save your application package. Click the Submit button after you do all these things and you're ready to send your completed application to Grants.gov.
Review the provided application summary that pops up after you click the button to confirm that your application will be submitted to the program you want to apply for. You need to log onto the Internet and log onto Grants.gov if you haven't already.
When you log on, your application package is automatically uploaded to Grants.gov, and a confirmation screen appears when the upload is complete. Note that a Grants.gov tracking number is provided to you; record this number so you can refer to it if you need to contact customer support.
The Track my Application section (found on the Applicants tab of the home page) of the site lets you log into Grants.gov to determine whether you've registered successfully with Grants.gov, check the status of your grant application submissions, and manage your applicant profile.
