ANR Online Grants & Contracts

Vendor Guidance for ANR Online - Grants & Contracts

The Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) administers various types of pass through agreements that can be in the form of a grant, contract or MOU/MOA. Invoicing from these agreements will now be handled through an ANR Online form, titled “Grants & Contracts Invoices” (the Form). The guidance below will assist vendors who have a grant or contract with DEC on how to properly use ANR Online for agreement payment. For any questions, please contact David Pasco at

Please use the Grant and Contract Invoicing form to begin submitting for payment. 

Please note that before you can access this form you must be signed into the system. If this is your first time using ANR Online you will need to register your organization.
