Benefits to EPA and the Public

Grants.gov provides significant quantitative and qualitative benefits to the grants community and Federal grant-making agencies. The Grants.gov system solution serves as a trusted broker between applicants and agencies, allowing applicants to do business with all agencies with a single registration on Grants.gov, thus alleviating the inefficiency associated with many independent and disjointed lines of communication. Grants.gov's Find and Apply mechanisms were developed and deployed as a government-wide solution to eliminate the need for each Federal agency to develop similar systems. By using the most effective combinations of existing technology the system is designed to be cheaper, faster and easier to use than older methods.
