We are very pleased to share news about improvements to the
MacArthur Foundation’s grantmaking processes and enhanced
service to grantees. We are launching a new Grants Management
System (GMS), which features an online interface to apply for
funding, and a portal where grantees can check the status of
proposals, grants, reports, and payments in real time. Our GMS
is accessible through a web browser, allowing grantees and
Foundation staff to enjoy a shared view of information that
will make communication easier.
We will temporarily pause grantmaking activities when we
retire our current system on August 10, and open the new one
on September 8. During this time, we will not be accepting
applications, documents or reports.
In addition, we will not be issuing grant payments between
August 14 and September 4.
Current grantees will receive user IDs to access the new
system on August 29, and they will be activated on September
We truly appreciate your patience during this transition.
If you have questions about managing your grants or proposals,
please contact your Program Officer.
We will continue to keep you updated with additional
information as we prepare for and undertake this important
