Data Standards

PCCD has compiled Data Standards to use when entering information into Egrants to ensure that all users enter data in a uniform manner, to avoid duplication.

In order to prevent multiple entries, it is imperative that you do a thorough search to make sure the individual or agency you are planning to enter is not already in the system. However, please keep in mind that some of the data in our Egrants system might not conform to these standards; therefore, your search criteria should be as broad as possible to take other variations into consideration. For example: If Pennsylvania is part of the organization’s name, you must spell out Pennsylvania.
