Why WebGrants

Our grant programs are transitioning to WebGrants so organizations and community members can access and manage all City grants in one location. WebGrants is a primary hub for required documentation and paperwork during throughout the lifecycle of grants, supports record-keeping and transparency, and facilitates coordination between grantees and grant managers.

Access WebGrants

What is WebGrants

WebGrants is an online grants management software. It is used by applicants, grantees, and grant managers for all phases of grants, including applications, awards, payment, and reporting.

How to use WebGrants

There are critical things to know when using the WebGrants system:

  • The Internet Browser ‘back’ button is not recommended. It will remove you from the WebGrants system and changes may not be saved.
  • Make sure to click ‘Save Form’ regularly. The application does not autosave.
  • Your application does not need to be completed all at once. You can stop working on your application at any time, save it, and come back to it later.

Because it will take 1-2 business days for your registration to be approved, the deadline to register for an account is February 8. The deadline to apply for a grant is February 15.

We've created short videos and guides explaining how to use WebGrants
