Grantium Provides Federal Agencies an Alternative to Grants.gov

Grantium responds to OMB by providing a Grants.gov alternative with Grantium's Grants Find & Apply Portal.

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA--(Marketwire - April 1, 2009) - Peter Orszag, Director of OMB, recently instructed "federal grant-making agencies to immediately identify alternative methods for accepting grant applications during the Recovery Act's expected peak period to reduce demand on Grants.gov's limited resources...", (an anticipated 60% increase in grant applications due to the Recovery Act funding). Grantium has responded to this immediate need by making its existing Grants Find & Apply Portal available as a standalone solution for U.S. federal agencies.

Grantium's Grants Find & Apply Portal is an alternative solution to Grants.gov, delivering the functionality of Grants.gov Find and Apply. Based on Grantium's industry-leading G3™ software, the Front Office Applicant Portal, which is currently being used by U.S. federal agencies, the portal allows agencies to post or publish Notice of Funds Availability (NOFA), offers 24 x 7 access to applicants via standard web browsers, and includes pre-configured standard federal application submission forms (SF-424, A, B, C, D).

To enable agencies to respond quickly, Grantium's Grants Find & Apply Portal will be offered as either a hosted and managed solution, or one to be implemented in the agency's environment. Agencies will be able to make a transparent transition from Grants.gov to their own find and apply system, thereby complying with the OMB requirements for alternatives to Grants.gov.

"Assisting federal agencies with an alternative solution to Grants.gov made perfect sense for Grantium. G3™, our enterprise grants management solution, already offers a Front Office Portal that has the same and more "Find and Apply" functionality." said Peter Andrews, CEO of Grantium Inc. "It was a logical initiative for us to step up to make this offering readily available to help agencies meet the challenging demands of responding to the Recovery Act. Since the Grants Find & Apply Portal is a solution that has already been developed and deployed for other federal agencies, implementation can be rapid and effortless." said Andrews.
