Grant Making Guidance

  • Region 5 has produced a sample Grant Template that grantees may view while preparing grants for submittal in TrAMS.  This is the format a grant takes when you select “View Print Application” in TrAMS.
  • Region 5 also encourages grantees to view our Grant Making Guidance, which will assist grantees with important information when completing an application.
