Important News for Applicants Receiving Awards

To receive your funding, applicants are now required to work directly with PCCD staff to finalize the award process. 

An email to all awardees was sent out on Thursday, April 14, 2022.  It contained instructions on how to register into PCCD's Egrants system and how to sign up as a Commonwealth vendor.  If you were not in receipt of that email, please contact RA-CD-NPSEC-GRANT@pa.gov for assistance, or call 717-265-8448.
