Applying for and Managing Grants
January 11, 2008
Applying for Grants
Most recipients of FTA Grants apply for grants on-line using FTA’s Transportation Electronic Award Management (TEAM) system. In order to access this system, you need a user name and password. To obtain these, contact your regional office.
There is an on-line user’s guide on the TEAM system webpage, as well as announcements about TEAM training opportunities. If you are unable to apply on-line, contact your regional office about submitting a paper application.
In addition to applying for grants, grant recipients and FTA use the TEAM system to manage the grants after award. TEAM allows users to monitor project budgets and milestones, make budget and scope revisions, and other project management activities. The on-line TEAM user’s guide explains how to do this. For more information on how to manage grants in TEAM, contact your regional office.
