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 "April 2017 Cycle Applications" heading, and select the link below it.
Guidance to help you
fill out the application is always available in the top navigation bar of the
application. Templates of each individual application type are also available
but only after you log in and choose to "Create a New
If you have questions, please call your Regional Program Representative.
Spring 2017 Application Webinar
OWEB hosted a webinar in April
2017 to help applicants prepare for the 2017 Open Solicitation deadline. Topics
covered were designed to help applicants strengthen Restoration and Technical
Assistance grant applications and included new insurance requirements, changes
to the budget categories, the online application, common budget errors,
expectations for maps and metrics, and qualities of successful applications.

Online Application Webinar Slides
Each year, OWEB puts on fiscal trainings around the state. In addition to fiscal topics, we cover questions about the online application, adjustments to the budget categories, and a special session on small grants. If someone from your organization has not been to a fiscal/small grant training for over three years, it is strongly advised to send the person responsible for fiscal processing for your organization.
