The Denali Commission has two electronic, online systems for Grant Management; GrantSolutions for processing proposed awards and post award amendments, and the Commission’s Project Database for reporting progress on funded awards.

The Commission utilizes GrantSolutions to manage the electronic processing of every award from start to finish. Access to GrantSolutions is limited to individuals from grantee organizations identified in the award agreement. The public does have access to awards funded by the Commission via the Project Database System.

The Commission’s Project Database is an integrated, online management reporting and tracking tool for Commission projects. The Project Database is used to manage the electronic reporting of award data by recipients, and is also available to the general public to view every award and project funded by the Commission. This database provides all project information, and encourages public viewing and sharing of information particularly through the reports module function. The Project Database also enables Commission staff to manage projects through the use of milestones and retrieve “at-a-glance data” of major project criteria including: the scope, award, theme, schedule, budget and reporting.

All award recipients must adhere to the Commission’s terms and conditions outlined in their award agreement for reporting. The Commission's online Project Database is the tool used for submitting all progress and closeout reports.

The Commission has created the following step-by-step instructions for grantees for both GrantSolutions and the Project Database. If you need additional assistance please contact one of the program managers.
