Directions for Submitting a Letter of Intent

You will need to upload the .pdf of the combined components described above into our online grants application system. We recommend using Adobe Acrobat (instructions available here).  If you are unfamiliar with combining documents, please contact your IT specialist for assistance.

In order to access the online application, you must allow cookies in your browser.  If you have any issues accessing the online application, a common fix is to clear your browsing history.

Click on

You will need to create a username and password by clicking on “New Applicant?” under the “email” box on the left side of the page.  Please store your login credentials in a secure place because you will need them to access your application.

You will need to save your application frequently so that your input is captured; any unsaved information will be lost.  There is no option to save and continue working, so you must select “Save and Finish Later.” You can return to your “In Progress” application by clicking on the blue link on the new page that will appear in your browser.  Upon clicking “Save and Finish Later,” you also will be emailed a link to the application portal and a copy of your application will appear in the body of the email.

To access your application after you have logged out of the online application system, use the link that was emailed to you when you clicked “Save and Finish Later.” It is important to use the link that is emailed to you to resume work on an application.  If you use the link listed here, you will always be brought to a NEW application, not the one you were previously working on.

We will not accept late applications because of technical issues with the online application portal, so please try logging in and entering your information in advance of the deadline.
