Register with Grants.gov

One-time registration with Grants.gov is required in order for you or your organization to apply for a grant. If you are a first-time registrant, it may take up to several weeks to have your registration confirmed and to receive your username and password. Start the registration process as early as possible to prevent delays in submitting application packages to agencies before their specified deadlines.

Use the Grants.gov registration tool to go through a step by step registration process, whether you are registering as an individual, organization, or grantor.


To simplify your funding search, we’ve developed a custom search tool that allows you to search Grants.gov by Youth Topic or Federal Agency.
