Welcome to TAB EZ
(Technical Assistance to Brownfields (TAB) easy brownfields grant application (EZ) software program)
TAB EZ, at www.ksutab.org, is now updated to reflect EPA's FY17 Assessment and Cleanup proposal guidelines.
NEW DUE DATE: Proposals are due on December 22, 2016.
TAB EZ provides a template, configured for the type of Assessment or Cleanup proposal you are writing, to draft your proposal.
Drafts can be exported to an MSWord (.doc) file for final editing and packaging before submittal. 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.
Users currently writing in TAB EZ should export their drafts to an MSWord file using the button at bottom page of the proposal outline screen, then enter (or copy/paste) content into a new TAB EZ template created for the FY17 competition.
TAB can provide a free review of your draft EPA Assessment and Cleanup proposals for those applying in EPA Regions 5, 6, 7 & 8.
Please give us a one-week heads-up that you will be sending a draft to review. It generally takes us a few days to get the proposals back to you. Please contact Blase Leven (firstname.lastname@example.org, 785-532-0780) to reserve your spot!
CCLR (http://www.cclr.org/technical-assistance) can review drafts of ARC-grant proposals for those applying in Regions 2, 9 & 10.
NJIT (http://www.njit.edu/tab/index.php ) can review drafts of ARC-grant proposals for those applying in Regions 1,3 & 4.

What is TAB EZ?
TAB EZ is a grant writing tool to be used to write EPA brownfields Assessment and Cleanup grant proposals*. The proposal 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 provides a framework for your proposal and provides strategies and links to reduce time in writing the proposal.
What TAB EZ can not do:
TAB EZ cannot write a specific and compelling proposal for you. Clearly explaining your specific need for funding and your project plans is something that only you can do. Before you submit your proposal(s), 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.
Using TAB EZ: We recommend using either Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome when working in TAB EZ.
* Be sure to view the 'Please Read!' on your 'Grant Applications Home' page for TAB EZ status and links to training webinars.
* Be sure to view the 'Assessment/Cleanup, Important information, READ ME' in your proposal outline (the very first item) for information on the EPA ARC Guidelines and using TAB EZ to prepare your proposal.
* If you need any assistance accessing or using TAB EZ, please contact Sheree Walsh, email@example.com, 785-532-6519.
