Workspace is the standard way to apply for grants in grants.gov for organizations. Workspace is a shared, online environment where members of the same organization may simultaneously access and edit different forms within a grant application. Workspace can be created for each funding opportunity.
One of the primary benefits of Workspace is the ability to separate individual PDF forms that make up the traditional application package. This allows multiple team members within an organization to access and edit forms at the same time. Upon completion of the individual forms, applicants have the ability to upload completed forms to the Workspace so other team members may view and edit the forms. Applicants may also choose to complete online forms, rather than downloading PDF forms, to complete the grant application. Applicants can also reuse PDF or online forms when applying for new funding opportunities.
Workspace utilizes varying types, roles, and access levels to all ow for flexible use across the spectrum of potential grant applicants. Upon creating a Workspace for a funding opportunity, users with the Authorized Applicant or Manage Workspace roles may add participants to a Workspace. Each participant has access to all the forms and the ability to contribute to the grant application.
With the upcoming release, the Grants.gov YouTube channel will feature a new batch of videos to help you apply for federal grants. Make sure to subscribe to receive notifications when they are posted. #grants #videos
