Application Instructions: Most grant applications can be filed online through ww.grants.gov. Grant application instructions are online and vary for each grant. Please note, applications must include a Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number and register with the System for Award Management (SAM). The SAM combined eight federal procurement systems and the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance into one new system. Beginning July 30, 2012, the Central Contractor Registration (CCR) system migrated into SAM. If you have previously registered with CCR, you will need to create an account in SAM. You will need to know the email address and username from your CCR account in order to migrate your existing information and permissions into your new SAM account. It is suggested that this be completed at least 30 days in advance of the application due date. Please visit https://www.sam.gov/sam/ for more information, including an overview video, quick start guides, future plans, and technical information for System to System users.
