If this submission is to change or correct a previously submitted "New" application, click the Change/Corrected Application box and enter the tracking number in the Federal identifier field. If this submission is to change or correct a "resubmission", "renewal", "continuation", or "revision" application, leave the Federal identifier field as previously filled with the existing identifier (e.g. Award number). Do NOT insert the tracking number in these cases.

Upon NSF email (Proposal made it past Grants.Gov and now at NSF)

In addition to the validations performed by the ERA system, further administrative review will be conducted by agency staff. The PD/PI and/or the applicant organization may be contacted for further corrections/clarifications that must be done via Fastlane using "proposal file update" module.

Check the Status of an Application in Fastlane

After applicants receive a receipt notification from NSF, Fastlane should be used to check the status of an application
