As a cloud-based system, ZoomGrants makes it easy for applicants to work on and submit their applications. ZG takes the program content and requirements set up by the program administrator and provides helpful features to facilitate the application process. Read about the basics, below.
In each program, the program administrator decides what content they’d like to request from the applicant. As a result, the tabs, questions, and requested documents will differ between programs and organizations. (For ZGU search and training purposes, refer to the default tab labels to find the appropriate resources.)
Admins also decide how to capture the information from their applications. They can choose the question type for each question, what features to use, what files to request, etc.
- Contact Admin Tab
If you have a question about the application content or what is expected of you, please use the Contact Admin tab in the application in your account to send an email directly to the program contact. The ZoomGrants tech support staff cannot answer content-related or requirement-related questions.
As you work through the application, remember that the system will automatically save your changes when you leave each field. You can click on each tab to access the content within it, or you can use the Previous and Next buttons to move sequentially through the application. You do not need to finish the application in one sitting nor do you need to intentionally save it.

Check for Completion
When you’re ready to submit your application, ZG will check to ensure that you have answered the questions presented to you and that you have uploaded files in each ‘required’ document slot.

Application Print Preview
Click the Print/Preview button to print a copy of your entire application. The Print/Preview also shows the calculated columns in tables in the Budget tab (if the program admin has set any up).
