STEP 3: Username & Password

Have you created your username and password?
To become an Authorized Organization Representative (AOR) you must create a profile. You will then create a username and password. You will need to know your organization's DUNS number to complete this process.

 

Purpose of this step:
An AOR creates a username and password to serve as "electronic signature" when submitting an application on behalf of their organization.

How long should it take?
Same Day. AORs will create a username and password when they submit their information.

Why do I need to create a username and password?
To safeguard the security of your electronic information, Grants.gov requires all users to create an account to verify your identity and eligibility to submit on behalf of your organization. This process determines that someone really is who they claim to be.

  • You will be authorized to submit grant applications on behalf of your organization after your organization's E-Business Point of Contact (E-Biz POC) has assigned you AOR rights.
  • Record your username and password information, as you will need it each and every time you sign-in to Grants.gov to submit an application.
  • Your organization must already be registered with the System for Award Management (SAM) and have a Data Universal Number System (DUNS) number to complete this step. Currently, Grants.gov supports only one DUNS number per credential.
