TAB EZ provides a template, configured for the type of Assessment, Cleanup, or Mulitpurpose application you are writing, to draft yourapplication. Drafts can be exported to an MSWord (.doc) file for final editing and packaging before submittal.

NOTE: Using the TAB EZ tool is not a substitute for reading the grant guidelines!

While we put a lot of information from the EPA grant guidelines into TAB EZ, there is also information we did not include.

What is TAB EZ?

TAB EZ is a grant writing tool to be used to write EPA brownfields Assessment, Cleanup and Multipurpose grant applications*. The application templates are updated each year when EPA publishes the new grant application guidelines. Updated TAB EZ templates are typically available within 2 weeks after the date the guidelines are published.


What TAB EZ can do:

TAB EZ creates an outline of your responses for each item in the guidelines criteria for your application and provides strategies and links to references and helpful hints to help you reduce time in writing an application.


What TAB EZ can not do:

TAB EZ cannot write a specific and compelling narrative for you. Clearly explaining your specific need for funding and your project plans is something that only you can do. Before you submit your application package, please ensure all necessary documents are included in your submittal package as specified in section IV.C Content and Form of Proposal Submission in the proposal guidelines.


Be sure to view the 'READ ME' in your application outline (the very first item) for information on the EPA MAC Guidelines and using TAB EZ to prepare your proposal.


If you need any assistance accessing or using TAB EZ,
