In the meantime, the FY 2021 Detailed Instructions and FY 2021 Navigation Guides can provide some information about what you will find once e-snaps open, as long as you understand that there may be changes in e-snaps functionality, forms, and questions since last year. You will be able to distinguish between the FY 2021 and FY 2022 resources by noting the “Date Published” on the page and by the fiscal year on the cover of the documents.
