Information for State Agencies

State agencies will continue progress toward fulfillment of the Governor’s promise to reform the State grant contracting process.  Consistent with Budget Bulletin H-1032 Revised New York State Grant programs have moved to the New York Master Grant Contract, the Grants Gateway, and the Prequalification of Not-for-Profits.

Master Contracts for Grants

State agencies have implemented the NYS Master Contract for Grants and will no longer execute contracts without the new statewide terms and conditions.

Grants Gateway

The Grant Opportunity Portal is in place.  State agencies have already posted over 100 upcoming and available procurement opportunities and are adding to the list on a daily basis.  The Grants Gateway now has over 10,000 registered providers, including not-for-profit, for-profit, and governmental organizations.   State agencies are encouraged to contact for their training needs.


The State has built a diverse prequalification team and continues to grow.  New agency specialists are receiving training daily, and the pool of prequalified not-for-profits is growing by leaps and bounds.  Effective August 1, 2013, if the not-for-profit vendor is not prequalified as required, State agencies should not sign grant contracts, renewals, or amendments.
