Register With Grants.gov

Before you can register as organization applicant with Grants.gov, you will need to obtain a DUNS number and complete registration in SAM. This process can take up to 4 weeks. Once you have completed these two items, enter your organization DUNS or DUNS+4 number below and press the "Register" button.

Once your DUNS number has been verified, you can submit your registration to Grants.gov. An e-mail will be generated to your organization's E-Business Point of Contact. Once the E-Business Point of Contact has verified you as an Authorized Organization Representative (AOR) and assigned you rights in the application, you will be authorized to submit grant applications through Grants.gov on behalf of your organization.

To register for a username and password, enter the organization 's DUNS OR DUNS+4 Number and then click the "Register" button below.


Complete the DUNS OR DUNS+4 Number field.
Click the Register button.

 
 



Tips for registering:

  • Ask the grant administrator, chief financial officer, or authorizing official of your organization to identify your DUNS number and to determine if your organization is registered with the SAM. If your organization does not know its DUNS Number, call Dun & Bradstreet at 1-866-705-5711 and follow the automated prompts to obtain this information. If your organization is not registered with SAM, apply by phone (1-866-606-8220) or register online at http://www.sam.gov.
  • Once you have a DUNS number and are registered with SAM, you must create a Grants.gov account to begin the process of applying for federal grants.
  • Grants.gov currently supports associating only one DUNS number per credential. A future enhancement is planned to provide the ability to assign multiple DUNS numbers to a credential.
  • Registering with Grants.gov is a simple process. Guidance on this process is included in the tutorial, user guide and Help section of this site. Please click on the Applicant tab for further assistance.
