On December 31, 2017, Grants.gov will officially retire the legacy PDF application package as a method to apply for a federal grant. This will change the way many Grants.gov users complete and submit their grant applications.There is now a fast, easy, and secure alternative called Workspace -- an online environment optimized for applicants collaborating on an application. Forms can either be (1) completed online within a web browser or (2) downloaded individually as PDF files, filled out, and uploaded back into Workspace. You can still view your full, complete application by clicking the Preview link in Workspace. Applicants who have already made the switch say Workspace is saving them time and making the application process easier. We think you will agree.
