The Add Grantor process is for adding new grantor users to the federal agency in Grants.gov. The process of adding a grantor to the agency will affiliate the new user with the grantor agency. As the agency POC, you can assign appropriate roles to the user.
If the grantor you are adding to the agency does not have a Grants.gov account yet, they will be prompted to create a Grants.gov account as part of the process.
How to Add a Grantor to the Agency
Login to Grants.gov.
Note: Grantor must have the Manage Grantors role to access the Manage Grantors page.
Click the Manage Grantors link under the Grantor Management heading.
Click the Add Grantor button.
Enter the email address of the person you need to add to your agency. Grants.gov recommends you use their federal agency email address and not a personal email address.
Click the Continue button after filling out the Email Address field.
If the person does not have an existing Grants.gov account, continue to step 6.
If the person has an existing Grants.gov account, confirm the Account Information on the Add Grantor window matches the person you wish to affiliate with the agency. Next, continue to step 7.
Enter the person's first and last name. These are not required fields, but it is helpful in registering the account.
Select all the Assigned Roles that this person needs to have within the agency. For information about each role, read the Manage Roles help article.
Click the Save button to complete the process or the Cancel button to end it.
The newly added person will receive an email with agency affiliation details.
Note: If the new person does not have a Grants.gov account, then that person must follow the instructions noted in the email and complete the affiliation process, including Grants.gov account registration, within 96 hours or the profile will need to be re-added
