Here are some sample searches that you can try:

  • Your grant number
  • Your organization name or DUNS number
  • Question related to EHBs. For example: “How to apply for a grant”, or “Add a grant”.

The Smart Assist will help you with the following tasks:

  • Change a grant Project Director (PD)
  • Request a submissions deadline extension

Other tasks listed in the Smart Assist widget will become available in the future.

The Favorites widget provides quick navigation to the EHBs pages you use most often, such as Organization and Grant Folders. For your convenience, favorites will be color-coded based on page type. You will be able to pin and un-pin the favorites from the Home Page. By clicking on the pushpin icon, displayed on the top right corner of each favorite block, you can easily unpin items from the widget. Favorites Widget
To add pages to your Favorites list, click on the Star icon in the bottom right corner of any page you are on, such as an Organization Folder home page . If a page cannot be added as a Favorite to your Favorites list, the Star icon will be white, letting you know that this feature is disabled for the page you are on. Add Favorite
To manage your Favorites, click on the View All Favorites link below the Favorites list and you will see the Manage Favorites page. You can pin and unpin items to your Home Page by clicking on the pushpin icons in the left column, “Pin to Home Page”. If the pushpin icon is upright and green, the item will be pinned to your Home Page. If the pushpin icon is horizontal and blue, the item will not be pinned to your Home Page, however you will still be able to access it from your Home Page by clicking on the View All Favorites link. Make sure to click the Save button to save any changes made in the Manage Favorites page.

Manage Favorites and Pin to Home Page

Helpful tip: Only five items will be displayed at a time in the Favorites widget of your Home Page. The first five items you add as favorites will automatically be pinned to your Home Page. Note that if you add a sixth item to your favorites, it will not automatically be pinned to your Home Page. You can go to your Manage Favorites page to unpin another item and pin the newest item so that it shows on your Home Page. N/A


The Tracking widget allows you to view the status of your recently submitted items. You can track the status of Applications, Prior Approvals, CIS Request, and other Submissions directly from the Home Page. The six most recently completed items will be listed in this widget.


Screenshot of Tracking Widget
Helpful tip: You will be able to see the status of grant applications for all the organizations you are registered to, regardless of whether you worked on the application or not. The submissions displayed in the Tracking widget depend on your grant level privileges. This means that you will only be able to see the status of submissions for which you have the correct grant level privileges. N/A

Recently Accessed

The Recently Accessed Home Page widget will allow you to navigate to tasks and areas in EHBs you recently worked on, or started but did not complete. Items in this list will be added automatically as you work in EHBs. Item types will be color coded for easier identification.

Recently Accessed Widget


Helpful tip: The Recently Accessed widget will show different items than the items listed in the Tracking widget. The Recently Accessed widget lists all items that you have recently accessed in the EHBs, such as a task that you are working on and have not yet completed, or a read-only page such as the Organization Home Page. The Tracking widget on the other hand only displays completed tasks as they go through the HRSA review process. The Tracking widget will not display folders such as the Organization Folder Home or the Grant Folder Home.
