Step 3: Grant Application

All applications are submitted online. Logon to the Grant Management System with the email address provided in the contact information for your organization's account and the password you created. If your organization received grants previously but you are unaware of the account, please do not create a new one. Contact our office at 314-733-6500 so a staff member can provide logon credentials if an organization account already exists.

Logging on takes you to your organization's Dashboard which has your contact information and a listing of all active and historical requests to MMF.  Within the box for each grant is information on that grant and its status.

In the menu at the top of the page, click the "Apply" option.   Read the summary descriptions of each application opportunity and be sure to choose the correct application form.   If the header is a hyperlink, the grant application period is open; if it is not, the application period is closed.

We recommend you scroll through the application to get a feel for what is requested.   Question lists are also available for download here before you begin for the Responsive application, Capacity Building application, and COAR application.  You can also access these previews from within the grant portal by clicking on the Question List box in the upper right corner of the page and a copy will open that you can download.  We also developed a guide to Creating a Strong MMF Proposal to help guide your efforts.

Most questions have instructions that if not followed, will create an error message or not let you move forward. The application is fairly self-explanatory. We feel the application is user friendly; however, if you encounter problems, contact our staff at 314-733-6500.  

Note: You can add content, edit and save your application as many times as desired. However, if you hit SUBMIT, while you'll still be able to view the application, you will no longer be able to edit it in any way.

Once your application is saved, you will find it by clicking on Dashboard and going to your application status page. It should be the first application listed. Click on the link that says view application and you'll be there.
