TAB EZ provides a template, configured for the type of U.S. EPA  Brownfields Mulitpurpose, Assessment, Revolving Loan Fund, or Cleanup (MARC) application you are writing.  It guides you through the application process and results in an editable draft document. Drafts can be exported to an MSWord (.doc) file for final editing and packaging before submittal. New in 2021: TAB has added a Revolving Loan Fund template for those applying for these funds!


TAB EZ has been updated with the FY22 guidelines. 


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

The grant guidelines contain additional information that is not in TAB EZ.


The FY22 EPA MAC Grant Competition Guidelines are out!

The TAB EZ grant writing software tool is being updated to reflect the new FY22 application guidelines. Users currently writing in TAB EZ should export their drafts to a MSWord file as soon as possible, using the button at bottom of the proposal outline screen. Once the guidelines are updated, enter (or copy/paste) content into a new TAB EZ template created for the FY22 competition. Be sure to check your content against the new FY22 grant application instructions.

What is TAB EZ?

TAB EZ is a grant writing tool to be used to write EPA brownfields Multipurpose*, Assessment, Cleanup and Revolving Loan Fund 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.  *EPA expects to issue the next solicitation for Multipurpose Grants in FY23.


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.


If you need any assistance accessing or using TAB EZ, 
please contact Sheree Walsh, chsr@ksu.edu, 785-200-7005.
