New Online Application
Beginning with the Fall 2016 grant cycle, OWEB no longer accepts paper applications unless otherwise noted. See below for how to register to use our online application system.
How to Submit an Application
1. Obtain a username and password. (If your organization already has a login for OGMS, skip this step.)
An OGMS login (username and password) is necessary to access the online grant application. An applicant must use his/her organization’s login if one exists. Only one login per organization is allowed. If no login exists, the applicant may request one.
If your organization does NOT already have an OGMS login and password, email Leilani Sullivan (email@example.com) and provide the following information.
- Organization name and address
- Grantee contact name and title
(This is the person who will receive all communications from OWEB and sign any grant agreements.)
- Phone number
- FEIN (Federal Employer Identification Number)
OWEB may only enter into agreements with legally established entities. Therefore,
OWEB must internally review potential applicants prior to creating an OGMS login.
2. Log in to the Online Application. There are two ways to log in:
1) Access the online application directly and use your OGMS login.
2) Log in to OGMS, find the "Fall 2016 Cycle Applications" heading, and select the link below it.

Webinar on Dos and Don'ts of Successful Applications
OWEB hosted a webinar on the “Dos and Don’ts of Successful Applications.” Topics covered were designed to help applicants strengthen Restoration and Technical Assistance grant applications. Regional Program Representatives discussed common budget errors, expectations for maps and metrics, and qualities of successful applications.
During the course of each year, OWEB offers trainings around the state to help our grantees better understand grants, budgets, and fiscal requirements. If you would like to attend a training, please email Tara Choate or phone her at 503-986-0184.
Recently updated federal government Uniform Administrative Requirements (OMB Super Circular) affect OWEB’s Grant Administration budget categories and requires OWEB Grantees to be legal entities. These changes are incorporated into the OWEB applications which are due October 19 and 20.
OWEB has prepared helpful guidance and recently held webinars to explain the changes.
