NYS Grants Gateway Info Session and Prequalification Q&A [Webinar]
Thursday, September 12, 2013 from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
New York State Grants Gateway Info Session and General Prequalification Q&A Session for NYCON Members
Have you been "prequalified" to receive funding from New York State through the new Grants Gateway process? If the answer is no, or if you're not sure, this webinar is for you! Please RSVP today if you are a NYCON Member.
Join us on Thursday, September 12th, 2013 from 10:30am to 12:00pm to learn what your organization has to do to become "prequalified" to renew their current or receive a new contract for funding from New York State.
If you currently have a contract with any New York State Agency, you should have already heard about the NYS "Grants Gateway" and that as a grantee, you are required (regardless of organization size or amount of grant) to go to the Grants Gateway and go through the “Prequalification” process.
Again, the Grants Gateway Prequalification questions are designed to give New York State agencies a snapshot of an organization's capacity, integrity and policy-making ability.
Prequalification must occur for all nonprofits:
- to execute any current contracts for grants received from NYS
- to apply for future contracts from any NYS agency
If you are a current grantee, this process should have been complete by July 31st, 2013. Any delay in completing the process may delay payment to your nonprofit. So, if you are NOT in the process yet, or if you have submitted the questionnaire and required documents and there are pending errors or problems that you face, or even if you just have general questions, you are strongly encouraged to join this webinar so that we may assist you in the expedient and effective completion of the "prequalification" application.
This webinar will cover the operational “how to’s” of the Grants Gateway portal. NYCON will also have staff on hand answering questions about certain Governance and Policy “Best Practices” that are sure to arise as you are going through this process. A more in-depth Governance & Policy webinar will be held on September 19th from 10:30am to 12pm. Please click here to register.
