The new forecasting tool should benefit both grantors and applicants.  By posting a forecast on, grantors can increase the views for each opportunity and provide more time for applicants to prepare.

Forecasts help applicants find out about opportunities sooner, providing more time for planning. This additional time to prepare the application and coordinate key partnerships may result in higher-quality applications.
