Grants.gov discontinuing “Legacy” PDF submission package on Dec. 31, 2017

As of December 31, 2017, the process for submitting proposals via Grants.gov will be changing to a new federal portal called Grants.gov Workspace.  Submission via Workspace will be MANDATORY for all Grants.gov proposals starting Jan. 1, 2018.  The Legacy package will still available until Jan. 1, but ORA is strongly suggesting that all PIs, Co-PIs, and grant administrators register with Grants.gov as an “Organization Applicant” as soon as possible, and use Workspace to submit their proposals so they are familiar with the process.  Grants.gov Workspace has an excellent training page located at https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/applicants/applicant-training.html .  For questions or to request department or sponsor-specific training on Workspace, please contact ORA at 581-1484.
