Our work with ARRA grant applicants leads us to offer this piece of advice. Applicant beware: Many funding opportunities under the ARRA have filing deadlines of 11:59 PM. However, live technical support is only available until 8:00 PM Eastern time. After 8:00 PM grant applicants using the Fedconnect system are on their own. Unless you're 100 percent confident you can make the filing system work for you, it's best to file early to ensure you can receive live technical support if necessary.
