Grantee Portal

The DC Bar Foundation uses an online grants database to manage all applications, reporting requirements, payments and general records. Please see below for more information.

General Information

  • To access your account, login via the main grantee portal: https://www.grantrequest.com/SID_2334
  • The database is compatible only in Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari. Chrome is not compatible.
  • If you forget your password, please click “Forgot Password?” on the login page of the main grantee portal and follow instructions.
  • To create an account, click “New Applicant?” on the login page of the main grantee portal and follow the instructions.
  • To log out of the main grantee portal, you must close the tab or your browser.

Applications

  • Each application has its own unique URL. To start an application, you need this unique URL, which will be posted under its corresponding grants section of our website when the application is live.
  • To access an application you have begun or submitted, login with the same username and password used to start or submit the application via the main grantee portal (link above). Select “Applications” in the top left corner and make sure the correct status is selected in the drop-down on the right side of the page (“Submitted Applications” or “In Progress Applications”).
  • If you’re applying for multiple grants, you can submit multiple applications for your organization under the same account (or different accounts). Just click the unique URL provided (see first bullet) to start a new blank application.
  • You can transfer ownership of the application, on the main dashboard, by clicking the “Transfer to new owner” icon (first icon under “Action”). The individual must create an account if s/he does not have one already.
  • When completing the application:
    • Questions marked with a red asterisk are required. You will not be able to submit the application if required fields are left blank.
    • To save your application but not exit it, press “Save” at the bottom of any page.
    • To save and exit your application, press “Save & Finish Later” at the bottom of any page. A copy of the saved application will be sent to the account owner.
    • In the top right corner, you can print a copy by clicking “Printer Friendly Version” or email a draft by clicking “E-mail Draft.”
    • You do not need to complete the tabs in order.
    • You will be able to review your application before submission.
    • After reviewing, make sure to hit “Submit.”

Reporting

  • On our online grants database, “Reports” are called “Requirements.”
  • When a requirement is ready to be complete, the form will be posted to the owner of the application (whoever submitted the application). You can change the account under which the requirement is posted by logging in under the original owner’s account via the main grantee portal, clicking “Requirements” in the top left corner, and then selecting the “Transfer to new owner” icon (first icon under “Action”) next to the requirement you want to transfer. The individual to whom you want to transfer the requirement must already have an account (see “General Information” above). Alternatively, we can transfer ownership of the application and all associated requirements (not individual requirements) within the administrative section. Please email grants@dcbarfoundation.org to transfer it for you.
  • If you receive funding for multiple projects, each form that is listed matches to a specific project; do NOT fill out a form without ensuring the “ID” matches the correct project. We will follow up with you individually, shortly after the requirement is made live, to give you the ID for each project.
  • To access your saved form, login under the requirement owner’s account using the main grantee portal. Make sure “Requirements” is selected in the top left corner and “In Progress Requirements” is selected on the top right of the table.
  • When completing a requirement:
    • Questions marked with a red asterisk are required. You will not be able to submit the report if required fields are left blank.
    • To save and exit your form, press “Save & Finish Later” at the bottom of any page. A copy of the saved form will be sent to the account owner.
    • You do not need to complete the tabs in order.
    • You will be able to review your application before submission.
    • After reviewing, make sure to hit “Submit.”
