Setting Up Your Account - Overview

Setting up your account is simple, and costs nothing. Open an account by clicking the Register or Sign-up button at the top of the Common Grant Application page. After registering, login by clicking on the Login button at the top of the Common Grant Application.


We will work with you to initially setup your account. We will need the following information to set up things for your account and applications:

  Contact information.
  Some organization information.
  Some program information (i.e.description, grant cycle dates, etc.).
  Program application questions.
  Program evaluation questions and evaluators.

After you've gotten setup, you'll have a full featured and complete grant management system. If you'd like to import information from an existing grant management system, please contact us. If you can get it out of your system into a CSV or Excel file, we can get it into our system.


After you login, you'll be ready to start submitting applications. All you need to do is:

  Click on "Start Draft Application" link on the dashboard.
  Identify grantmakers that may be interested in funding your organization and program.
  Start, fill out and submit an application.
