Register

All users need to register with Grants.gov, which creates one Grants.gov account for accessing and using the system as either an applicant or grantor. An account in Grants.gov is defined by your unique email address, username, and password. The Grants.gov account creation process is the same for both applicants and grantors. Watch the video or read the how-to instructions below to create a Grants.gov account.

To connect your one Grants.gov account with one or more entities, you create separate "profiles" within your account. One Grants.gov account can have multiple profiles, and each profile allows for different roles and access levels to be assigned within that particular entity. The Grants.gov profile creation process is different for applicants and grantors.

Users may use the My Account features once registered to manage one or more profiles within your Grants.gov account or update account information, such as changing your email address or password.
