The Grants.gov mobile app, which launched in 2018, recently reached 100,000 installs by users of iOS and Android devices.
A growing number of grant pros are using the official Grants.gov app to keep abreast of federal grant announcements. The app makes it easy to find federal grant opportunities, add grant deadlines to your calendar, and subscribe to be notified when changes are made to a grant listing.
The Grants.gov app was nominated for FedScoop’s Innovation of the Year award in 2018, and early reviews from the user base have been positive.
“The app is fast, easy, and user friendly. It looks good,” reads one App Store review.
“Excellent interface, very intuitive and nicely designed app that really facilitates the usually difficult process of searching for grants,” reads another.
