     Applying Through Grants.gov

Grants.gov has been receiving intermittent reports of applicant login issues, with some applicants having to make multiple attempts before entering the system.

Submitting applications through Grants.gov, a single access point for more than 1,000 grant programs offered by 26 federal grant-making agencies, offers many benefits. These include onetime registration, access to grant opportunities across the federal government, the ability to complete an application offline, notices of funding opportunities, and online tracking of grant applications.

Consulting frequently asked questions will enhance your understanding of the site's benefits and registration process.


Grants.gov provides registration checklists and step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process which requires completion of the following tasks before applying for a grant.

To register with the Central Contractor Registry, you will need the following:

  • A DUNS Number.
  • An E-Business Point of Contact.
  • An M-PIN.

Detailed registration requirements can be found in the Grant.gov Web site's Get Registered section. A Central Contractor Registration Worksheet is provided to help you in this process.
