Grant seekers can now research, access, and apply for federal grants via one consolidated Web site, Grants.gov
, the sole Web portal where federal government agencies post funding opportunities. This strategic alliance creates a much faster, more efficient, and greatly simplified electronic and paperless process for community and faith-based nonprofit organizations, universities, colleges, and libraries that seek federal financial support.
Many government agencies have transformed their grantmaking activities from decentralized, paper-based processes to an electronic one that drives federal Internet traffic to the Grants.gov Web site. In fact, most agencies no longer accept paper applications at all.
