Grants.Gov Down April 18-19

I’m currently testing Grants.Gov applications on the Mac, which looks encouraging, as they have done away with the PureEdge forms and now work exclusively with Adobe PDF forms. Last fall, we ended up punting, and we set up a Windows machine purely for the purpose of being able to fill out the PureEdge forms. (and the proposal was rejected anyway…)

Grants.Gov site will be down this weekend, April 18 and 19th for a system upgrade to help cope with the influx of applications related to the stimulus package.

This is terrible timing for anyone trying to meet an April 21st deadline for submitting an application.
