New to the Grants.gov Mobile App? Check Out the In-App Walkthrough

Grants.gov App WalkthroughThe latest update to the Grants.gov mobile app adds a walkthrough resource designed to help users get more out of the app.

You can find the App Walkthrough near the bottom of the Explore screen.

For example, if you’ve downloaded the app to your iOS or Android device, you probably know that you can use the app to search for federal grants. But did you know that you can also save any search query so that you will be notified when future opportunities are published that match your query?

You can also edit any saved search query – either within the app, or on your desktop, once you have logged into your Grants.gov account.

The app walkthrough also shows app users how to filter search results and customize the types of notifications received from the app.
