PCA Electronic Single Application (ESA)


About the ESA

The PCA is making its grants programs more accessible to you through the Electronic Single Application (ESA), a web-based system for use by PCA applicants. Once you register, the system takes you through the application process for the grant program of your choice and allows you to submit all components online. All applications to the PCA, as well as Grant Award Agreements (GAA) and Final Reports are submitted through ESA.

Note: the complete your Final Report for 16-17 and Grand Award Agreement for 17-18, you still need to access the old PCA eGrant system at:
