Grants & loans

We manage grants and loans that benefit the health of Washington's land, air, and water. This page is your gateway to our grant and loan funding opportunities and guidance for managing your grant or loan.

Applying for or managing a grant or loan

You can apply for and manage most grants and loans in EAGL, Ecology’s Administration of Grants and Loans system. To use EAGL, you must:

  1. Have a Secure Access Washington (SAW) account
  2. Register as an EAGL user​
See the options below to set up a SAW account and register in EAGL.

If you manage a grant or loan that is not in EAGL, please visit our page for guidance and links to information not in EAGL.

Log in to your Secure Access Washington (SAW) account here, and you will be directed to the EAGL system registration.

If you already have a SAW account for other government services, do not create a new account. Follow the instructions below to register in EAGL:

To access current agreements in EAGL

If you are a newly registered EAGL user, the EAGL system will notify the "authorized official" in your organization that you are a new user. Once you are registered in EAGL, the "authorized official" must add you to each agreement you need to access.

Guidance and forms not in EAGL

Not all guidance and forms are available inside the EAGL system. Use the guidance and links to information not in EAGL to help you manage your grant or loan.
