CapGrants Submissions Portal

Here are some general guidelines about the process.

  • You do not need to complete the submission of all Organization documents or Capital Request documents (project documents) in one sitting. You may start the process, upload certain documents, and come back later to complete. Upload only final documents (i.e., not drafts).

  • Organization Documents
    • Before you can submit any Capital Request for specific projects (e.g., equipment system project or a vehicle project), you must first complete the submission of all Organization documents.

    • You only need to submit the Organization documents once per organization, regardless of the number of Capital Requests the organization is submitting. For example, if you are planning on submitting Capital Requests for a vehicle project and an equipment system project for the same organization, you would only submit the Organization documents once.

  • Once the Organization documents have been completely submitted, the submitter of the Organization documents can submit a Capital Request for a specific project and/or can choose to allow others to submit one or more Capital Requests by clicking the “Add User” button on the CapGrants Dashboard and entering the new user’s NYC.ID.

  • Each individual submission can only be created and managed by one person. For example, if Submitter A submits the Organization documents and Submitter B submits a Capital Request, Submitter A cannot submit any documents or respond to any questions with respect to that Capital Request. Likewise, Submitter B cannot submit any documents or respond to any questions with respect to the Organization documents.

  • Each time you complete the submission of Organization documents or a Capital Request or add a user, you will receive a confirmation e‐mail. Please check your spam folder if you do not receive a confirmation e‐mail within several minutes.
