|Adobe Acrobat Reader Information|
You MUST have a compatible version of Adobe Acrobat Reader (we recommend version 8.1.3 or 9.1.2 or 9.2) installed on your computer in order to prepare an application package for submission through Grants.gov. Earlier or older versions are NOT compatible. For more information concerning compatible versions, please see http://www.grants.gov/help/download_software.jsp#adobe811.
Explanatory Note: The compatible version of Adobe Reader is necessary only for downloading and using the Grants.gov application package. You will need .PDF generation software, i.e. Adobe Professional, to convert one of your own files to .PDF format. You can find a list of .PDF generation software at http://www.grants.gov/agencies/software.jsp#3 .

Reader" button below to be directed
to the Adobe download page. You will need to know what version of
Windows is on your computer.
If you experience problems while downloading this software, please contact the OIT HelpDesk at firstname.lastname@example.org or 9-4648.
