Important to note is the New Online Grant System IACA launched earlier this year:
·      The online grant system manages applications, grant agreements, and reports for all grant programs.
·      The system was developed in Salesforce. If you have applied within the past year all your need to do is login to your account to access the application.
·      If you are a new applicant, please create an account in the system:
·      More information on this new online system can be found on our website, including a user manual.
·      To help you navigate the new system there is a webinar recording done earlier this year.
