After selecting a program from the “Opportunities” tab on the left side bar, an applicant can begin filling out an application. The form is divided into multiple sections requesting specific details from the applicant. The left sidebar offers a series of tabs that allow for jumping back and forth between these sections. At the bottom of each section is a series of buttons that allow you to either go back to the previous section, save the application, or move to the next section. If an application is saved, but not completed or submitted, it will be moved into the “Drafts” tab in the left side bar of the main menu. Illinois eGrant sessions will time-out after extended inactivity, so please save often.
