Organization Registration Deadline:  June 7, 2017, 5pm E.T.

Register early!

  • We recommend you register at least FOUR weeks before the OTF application deadline.
  • You can register at any time, except during the three weeks leading up to each application deadline.  During this window you will NOT be able to submit a registration or update your organization’s profile. 
  • OTF will confirm, via email, within 10 business days whether your organization is eligible to apply or if further information is required.

Already Registered?

  • Already registered with OTF? You are welcome to update your profile information at any time, except during the three weeks leading up to each application deadline. 

  • During this window, you will not be able to submit a registration or edit your organization profile.

  • Why? Because we need time to verify any new information before you can proceed with an application. We also want you to have enough time to submit an application after we confirm your eligibility.

  3. Once your registration is verified, OTF will email you a new user ID and password that you can use to begin a grant application for LPRF and/or OTF.
