This interactive computer-based course is part of a series designed to provide various users with basic knowledge about using the web-based Mitigation Electronic Grants (eGrants) Management System. This course is specifically targeted for Subgrant Applicants.
The eGrants system is a part of the eGovernment initiative. eGrants helps to streamline the application process by providing local governments the ability to apply for and manage their subgrant applications over the Internet. This course is designed to allow the individual to take it in its entirety or to focus on specific aspects of the Mitigation eGrants System. The course examines registering for access to the eGrants System; creating and completing and submitting subgrant applications to the Grant Applicant; and managing submitted applications.
