Workspace: Fast, Easy to Use, and Secure

UPDATES: Click here for the latest Workspace blog posts or training videos.

For years, applicants have applied for federal grants by submitting a package of PDF forms.

But on Dec. 31, 2017, will officially retire the legacy PDF package as a method to apply for a federal grant. Why? There’s now a fast, easy, and secure alternative to apply for federal grants called Workspace. Workspace is an online environment optimized for applicants who are collaborating on an application.

Forms can either be completed online within a web browser or downloaded individually and uploaded to Workspace.

Applicants who have already made the switch say Workspace is saving them time and making the application process easier.

Browse our YouTube channel today and plan to use Workspace when applying for your next federal grant.

  1. I am a teacher and a single parent. I am trying to obtain assistance with paying debt from student loans and credit cards.

    I would like to buy a home for me and my son but the programs I applied for keep denying me assistance due to me working two sometimes three jobs just to stay ahead of the bill collectors.

  7. I have applied for grants for a total of five years and have not landed a single one; Who do you have working in your offices anyways? I’m educated , our business has been in proper standings these 5 years since incorporation. We are trying to do something for not only ourselves but our community! Why wont you let go of any of that federal money to people who need it instead of constantly lining the pockets of politicians and etc. I just don’t understand;
