Common grant application formats have been adopted by groups of grantmakers to allow grant applicants to produce a single, standardized proposal for those in a specific community of funders (usually along geographic lines).

The United Philanthropy Forum's website has links to more than a dozen common grant application forms in use in various regions of the U.S. While not all foundations accept common grant application forms, most common application forms include lists of grantmakers that do accept the common application format.
