Grants.gov Workspace: Fast, Easy to Use, and Secure

UPDATES: Click here for the latest Workspace blog posts or training videos.


For years, applicants have applied for federal grants by submitting a package of PDF forms.

But on Dec. 31, 2017, Grants.gov will officially retire the legacy PDF package as a method to apply for a federal grant. Why? Thereโ€™s now a fast, easy, and secure alternative to apply for federal grants called Workspace.

Grants.gov Workspace is an online environment optimized for applicants who are collaborating on an application.

Forms can either be completed online within a web browser or downloaded individually and uploaded to Workspace.

Applicants who have already made the switch say Workspace is saving them time and making the application process easier.

Browse our YouTube channel today and plan to use Workspace when applying for your next federal grant.

  1. I need help. Our company is such a new idea I cannot find any grants or funding opportunities available. Can you please help us. We are a nail polish company that is marketed to include those with visual impairments, religious restrictions or work regulations against polish. We are a new one of a kind truly scented polish made with non toxic ingredients. We have added braille to our labeling to include those with visual impairments, our employees are learning sign language to communicate with those with hearing loss. The idea is not exclude a single individual in our marketing efforts. We need assistance obtaining FDA approval and other equipment for marketing, any ideas where to find help for our company?

  2. BUT WHERE IS IT????? WHERE???? 20+ links to how great the system is, and the actual workspace is hidden in some obscure dimension.

    1. Grant applicants can create a workspace after logging in and locating a funding opportunity for which they want to apply.

    2. Agreed. Was thinking exactly the same thing when I say your comment. I submitted 63 proposals in a recent 6 week period, ONE last Sept. in “Workspace” but I have no memory of the submission. Fewer tutorials, more access to the system!!

  3. this is useless information. Use workspace but do not show how to create one. Typical government. I’m sure they wasted millions developing a byzantine unusable system.

    1. can’t agree more with the comments, really frustrating. they should open an opportunity for an application system so someone can build one for them

  4. Grants.gov is possibly on of the least user friendly sites that I have ever worked in. Workspace? Where? Impossible…
