Pandemic Recovery Grants

Frequently Asked Questions:  

Q: My organization has previously received pandemic relief funding. Are we eligible for the FY23 Pandemic Recovery Grant? 

A: Yes! While funding for certain organizations will be prioritized, we recommend all eligible organizations apply.  


Q: Can more than one person work in the application at a time? 

A: Yes. Submittable has a collaboration feature allowing more than one person to work in an application simultaneously. Visit our Online Application Instructions to learn more:  


Q: Help! I’m having trouble filling out the Submittable web form (error, saving, file upload, editing form fields/table).  

A: Use an approved browser such as Firefox, Chrome, or Safari. Submittable does not support Internet Explorer or Edge.  

Scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Save Draft.” A message will appear: “Last saved a few seconds ago.” If this message does not appear, ensure you save a copy of your (narrative) answers before proceeding. 

Log out of Submittable. Refresh the browser window, and then log back in again. If problems persist, try another browser.  

Although Submittable autosaves your work, it is best practice to manually save and refresh the page periodically.  

If problems persist, alert Grants Staff and visit Submittable’s help desk:
