How to Apply
You must apply to an open funding opportunity through our online Grants Management System. Only applications submitted through this portal will be evaluated. FFAR will not accept applications submitted by any other mechanism.
- Access the application through the link shared by FFAR.
If you are a new user, register for an account by clicking the “Create Account” button under the email address box on the left side the home page. You will have access to the application once the application cycle opens in the RFA page.
Save Your Work
Once you access the application, save your work consistently. To access a saved application, log into your Grant Management System account and you will see the open opportunity under Applications.
Be mindful of the application deadlines, which appear in the first tab of each online application. Applications that are not submitted by the deadline will not be accepted, and extensions will not be granted in fairness to all applicants.
Once you submit a complete application, you will receive an automated response confirming that we received your application. The automated response will provide a copy of the Application submitted and the data provided.
An email notifying you of our final funding decision will be sent after we review your application. Be aware that the proposal evaluation process takes approximately nine months. Please be patient. We will contact you regardless of the success of your proposal.
