How do I register?
If you have never had an account in WebGrants before, register here. You don’t need to create a new account if you have had one in the past, even if you have changed roles or are working with a different organization. Just let the program officer know that you need your account updated and they will help you. Program officers can help check your registration information but cannot create a new account for users.
How do I start an application?
- For applicant staff – send the program officer a list of everyone who is going to be working on the application before the project team registers. This will help the program officer quickly assign any new team members to the right WebGrants account.
Once you login you can search for different Funding Opportunities. Find the grant you want to apply for (example: LCDA Development 2021). You will then be able to start a new application.
Who is the applicant? Who is the grantee?
The applicant is the City, county, HRA/EDA, or Port Authority submitting the application. If you are awarded a grant, the grantee will be the same organization that submits the application.
I am working with a team. Who should be listed as the primary grantee?
The primary grantee should be the project manager from the government organization that is applying for the grant. The primary contact will be able to add others from the project team to the application as collaborators in the General Information section of the application.
How do I add collaborators to the application?
Anyone working on the grant will need to have an account in WebGrants and be connected to the same organization. The primary contact, who should be from the government organization applying, can add collaborators as additional contacts in the General Information section by selecting members of the project team in the drop-down menu under Additional Contacts. If you don’t see the person you are looking for, make sure they have registered. Check with the program officer to make sure they have been linked to the right account.
How do I edit the number of jobs or housing units?
You can change the number of jobs or housing units by clicking on the entry you want to change. After clicking on the number you want to change you will be taken back to the editing screen for that entry.
Can I save a section and come back?
No, WebGrants doesn’t save sections until they are complete. You don’t need to complete the entire application at once, but you do need to complete the section you are working on before saving and exiting.
