In an effort to increase our grant application efficiency and to communicate on a timelier basis with applicants and grantees, the ABC Board now uses the Foundant Online Grants Management System. Among many benefits, applicants and grantees can easily:

  • Update organizational contact information
  • Create, save and submit online applications
  • Upload required application documents
  • Complete and submit required reports

For new applicant organizations, be sure to review the important information in How to Get Started in Foundant. All applicants should take time to read each of the grant program website pages and the Frequently Asked Questions before beginning the application process. A double-check on eligibility requirements can save time and effort!
