Starting an application
When you click Apply, the applicant contact information will automatically be entered from your Profile page. If you need to update this information, click Profile on the menu bar at the top of the page.
You do not have to complete the application in one session, as long as you remember to click Save Draft before you log out.
System time out
The system will time out automatically after 60 minutes of inactivity without saving. Click Save Draft while you work to ensure you don’t lose information.
Text fields are formatted as plain text with Arial font. You can copy and paste from other documents; bullets will be copied, but bold, italics and underline formatting will be lost and the font will be converted to Arial.
Some text fields have word limits. If you type text into the field, you will see the word limit count down at the bottom left corner of the field. Once you reach the word limit, you will not be able to enter any more characters. If you paste text from another document, any text that exceeds the word limit will be deleted.
Some programs require documents or audio-visual material to be uploaded as support material.
Text documents are only accepted in PDF file format. (If you need a PDF conversion program, click Help on the menu bar in TAC Grants Online for a list of freeware programs.)
Audio files are accepted in the following formats: MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC.
Required fields and support material
You will not be able to Submit your application until you have entered all required information and uploaded all required support material.
Submitting your application
Applications must be submitted on or before the Application Submission Deadline. The system will not accept applications after the deadline.
When you click Submit, the status flag at the top left of the page will change from Draft to Submitted. You will also receive an email to confirm your application was successfully submitted. Once your application is submitted, it is locked and cannot be changed.
