Grants.gov Changes Effective Jan. 1

In an effort to provide ongoing communication, Research & Sponsored Programs is providing notice that Grants.gov has phased out its Legacy Application Package effective Jan. 1.

This means that applicants will no longer be able to apply using the older, single PDF package of forms. Applicants will apply for grants using the new, web-based Grants.gov platform called Workspace.

Using the Grants.gov Workspace platform brings a range of benefits to applicants and their organizations:

  1. Workspace helps detect errors earlier. Improved error-checking allows applicants to catch and correct errors earlier resulting in fewer rejected submissions.
  2. Workspace saves time. Forms from old workspaces can be reused, reducing data-entry and saving valuable time.
  3. Workspace streamlines collaboration. Multiple forms can be completed by a team of applicants.

In January, Research & Sponsored Programs will hold two workshops in Mullins Library to discuss this change. To register, click the date: Jan. 17 or Jan. 18, then click the Register button. Additional information and links to tutorials can be found on our Grants.gov Proposal Submission Changes webpage.
