During open solicitation, click on the link through our website to answer the eligibility questions. Once you reach the log in page, click “create your password” next to “first time user” located at the top of the page. For schools, you will need your school and district ID number that can be found on the National Center for Education Statistics site (NCES) and you can click the link to look that up. If you are a public library (and not using a 501c3 status such as a “friends” group) you will use your IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services) library ID which can be found on their website. If you are having trouble, click on the “Need Support” link at the bottom of the grant system and ask the tech support team for help. Manual verification of an organization by the tech support team can take up to 48 hours from the time they receive the inquiry during busy times- the Foundation suggests not waiting until the day before a grant deadline to start this process.
