Did you know the Grants.gov mobile app (Android | iOS) streamlines some time-consuming applicant tasks and makes it feasible to accomplish these tasks on the go?

Let’s say you want to review a funding opportunity package’s required forms, and then share a read-only PDF of one form with a colleague who will be tasked with filling in all required fields and attaching additional documentation.

Here’s how to do it in about two minutes:

1️⃣  Tap the Package link on the funding opportunity announcement.

Tap the Package Link

2️⃣ Tap the + symbol next to the Opportunity Package ID. Then Tap the Preview Opportunity Package Details link.

3️⃣ Scroll down until you see the Mandatory and Optional forms listed on the screen. Then tap the form name you want to view as a read-only PDF in your mobile device’s default browser (in this case, Safari).

Tap the form name you want to view

4️⃣ Pinch and zoom as needed to review form fields. To share this form, tap your device’s share icon.

Share the form

 

5️⃣ Select an app – a messaging app, social media app, or email app – and begin composing a note to your colleague with a link to the read-only PDF.
