Learning Workspace – How to Create a Grants.gov Workspace


To create a Grants.gov workspace for a federal
grant opportunity, you must have the Expanded AOR role, the Standard AOR role, the Manage
Workspace role (these are the core Grants.gov roles) – or you must have a custom role
with the Create Workspace privilege. If you do not have the Create Workspace privilege
or one of the required core roles, you will not be able to create a workspace. Another individual at your organization will
need to create the workspace and then add you as a Participant. Here are the steps for creating a workspace: First, log into your Grants.gov applicant
account. Second, locate the grant opportunity you wish
to apply for. On the top of the View Grant Opportunity page,
you will see a red Apply button. Click the button. Third, enter an Application Filing Name on
the following page, which is titled Apply Now Using Workspace. If you have multiple applicant profiles, you
will see a Profile drop down menu. You will be required to select a profile prior
to creating a workspace. If you do not have the Own Workspace privilege,
you will be prompted to select an organization user who does have the privilege. Now click the Create Workspace button. You will be taken to the newly created workspace. If you have the Own Workspace privilege, you
will be able to begin managing the workspace as a workspace owner. When creating a workspace for a grant opportunity,
keep the following tips in mind: Logging into your Grants.gov account before
creating the workspace will streamline the process. You can also create a workspace by copying
an existing workspace from the Manage Workspaces page. You can access the Online User Guide anytime
during the application process by clicking on the question mark icon in a page, tab or
pop-up window. You will be directed to a relevant help article.
