It is recommended that you start this process at least 6 weeks in advance of submitting your application.  Instructions to complete these registrations are in our application guide and online tutorials 12 & 13.  
  • Previously registered applicants with Grants.gov:  Please note, on April 4, 2022, the federal government changed entity validation service providers at the same time it stopped using the DUNS Number and began using the Unique Entity ID in SAM.gov to uniquely identify entities. All entities, even those already registered in SAM.gov, must validate their entity information through the new service provider. Data rights limitations require SAM.gov to collect the data from the user directly, not use previously validated data. This means entities may have to provide supporting documentation to update the new service provider’s data. This is an expected part of a complex data transition. SAM is working on tickets in the order received. You can find resources related to this process here. Please do not create multiple incidents for the same request. If you have any questions about the SAM process, please contact the Grants.gov Helpdesk at 1-800-518-4726.  Please update your SAM registration TODAY!
