GFMS User Registration


The Grants and Funding Management System (GFMS) is utilized by the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS), ADAMHS/ADAS/CMHS Boards and all Prevention, Treatment and Recovery Support Providers for all OhioMHAS funds (federal and state) to support proposal, submission, management, and all required (federal and state) data collection. The system provides a mean for an organization to apply for funding, report progress on identified outcomes, report expenditures, and to draw-down funds into request reimbursement for the services. This guide describes the process of how an individual can registrar themselves in order to utilize the functionality of the Grant and Funding Management System.
