Mandatory Electronic Grants Submission - Proposed Rule

Grants.gov Spring Newsletter

Getting started with Grants.gov is easy!

GetStarted - There are two key features on the site: Find Grant Opportunities and Apply for Grants. Everything else on the site is designed to support these two features and your use of them. While you can begin searching for grant opportunities for which you would like to apply immediately, it is recommended that you complete the remaining Get Started steps sooner rather than later, so that when you find an opportunity for which you would like to apply, you are ready to go. Click on any of the steps listed below or on the left navigation bar to access more detailed information.

RegistrationChecklist - Prior to submitting grant applications through Grants.gov, it is recommended that your organization identify key roles required for the submission process. Click Key Roles (.doc) for an overview of the roles and responsibilities required for the Grants.gov submission process. The following checklists can help guide your organization through the one-time registration process required for submitting grants online.

RequestaDUNS - In order to register with the Central Contractor Registry, a requirement for registering with Grants.gov, your organization will need a Data Universal Number System (DUNS) number. A DUNS number is a unique nine-character identification number provided by the commercial company Dun & Bradstreet (D&B).

CCRRegister - Your organization will need to be registered with Central Contractor Registry (CCR) before you can submit a grant application through Grants.gov. When your organization registers with the CCR, you will be required to designate an E-Business Point of Contact. This individual will become the sole authority of the organization with the capability of designating, or revoking, an individual’s ability to submit grant applications on behalf of their organization through Grants.gov.

Credential Provider - The Credential Provider for Grants.gov is Operational Research Consultants (ORC). When you register with ORC, you will receive a username and password, which you will need to Register with Grants.gov as an Authorized Organization Representative (AOR). As an AOR, you will be authorized to submit grant applications through Grants.gov on behalf of your organization. Note that the eBusiness Point of Contact for your organization will need to assign these rights to you once you have registered with Grants.gov. Registering with a Credential Provider is a simple process.

Find - Grants.gov provides organizations with the ability to search for Federal government-wide grant opportunities. The Office of Federal Financial Management recently issued a policy directive (.pdf) requiring that all Federal agencies post grant opportunities online as of November 7. Click the Search Grant Synopses link to begin your search.

Apply - Do you have the Funding Opportunity and/or CFDA number of the grant for which you want to apply? You need it to download a grant application and apply for a grant. If you have the Funding opportunity and/or CFDA number, you are ready to download the application package and begin the process to apply for grants through Grants.gov.

Index - This site allows organizations to electronically find and apply for competitive grant opportunities from all Federal grant-making agencies. Navigation of the site is simple. Use the colored tabs and links at the top of the screen to access primary sections of the site and links on the left side of the screen to access content within each section.

GovBenefits.gov - This is a FREE, confidential tool that helps you find government benefits you may be eligible to receive.
