eGrant: Submitting an Application


  • -click on the “Submit” tab in the left side bar
  • -click on the “Next” button at the bottom of the Certification section.

Prior to submitting an application, applicants must upload all required attachments, complete all required form fields and must agree to the Certification statement under the Certification Tab by selecting the "I agree with the above statement" from the drop-down box.

Illinois eGrant will not allow an application with missing required fields to be submitted. Missing required information will be followed by a link, “Go There”, to go directly to the incomplete section. However, it cannot prevent the submission of incorrect information. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure accuracy and correctness of submitted information and documents. 

To submit the application, click on the “Submit My Data” button. The application has not been submitted until this button has been clicked. An e-mail confirming that the application has been received by the IACA will be sent to the address connected to the applicant’s Illinois eGrant account. If a confirmation e-mail is not received, please check the address in the User Info.

If the address is correct, verify that the application was indeed submitted. To do this, go to the Illinois eGrant Main Menu and click on the “History” tab in the left side bar. If the application is not is the “History” tab, but instead still listed in the “Drafts” tab, then the application has not been submitted. Re-open the application by clicking on the edit icon at the top of the screen and follow the instructions for submitting an application.

Print a copy of the application for your personal files using the View function at the top of the page
