In order to safeguard the security of your electronic information, Grants.gov maintains the Authorized Organization Representative (AOR) username and password. The process is used to determine, with certainty, that someone really is who they claim to be.
When you register with Grants.gov, you will receive a username and password. You will need to login to Grants.gov once you receive that username and password to begin the activation process to become an AOR. Being an AOR enables you to submit applications on behalf of your organization.
When you log into Grants.gov for the first time with your username and password an e-mail will be generated to your organization's E-Business Point of Contact.
When the E-Business Point of Contact assigned rights, 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.
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 find this information. If your organization is not registered with the SAM, the organization can apply by phone (1-866-606-8220) or register online at http://www.sam.gov.
- Once you are registered, you will receive an ID and password to have your grant application forwarded to the appropriate government agency safely and securely.
- 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. Just click on the Support tab for assistance.
