After you login, you'll be led through a step by step process to setup your account. It is quick and easy. You don't need to have all of your information in front of you to get started. You can set up the account at your leisure. All you need to do is:

  Provide some contact information.
  Provide some organization information.
  Provide some program information (i.e.description, grant cycle dates, etc.).
  Specify your program application questions.
  Specify your program filters (i.e. funding interests).
  Specify your program evaluation questions and evaluators.
  Allow applicants to start submitting applications.

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.
