Applying for a Grant - Where and How
Page 2

Grant applicants need to be registered with CRR prior to submitting a grant application through Grants.gov. By registering with the CCR, the organization is required to designate an e-Business Point of Contact (EPOC) According to Grants.gov, the EPOC is the sole authority of the organization capable of designating or revoking an individual's ability to submit a grant application on behalf of their organization through Grants.gov. The CCR also provides organizational information that Grants.gov uses to verify an applicant's identity and to pre-fill repetitive information on grant application, which will ultimately save you time in applying for a grant.

4. Register with Credential Provider.

Grants.gov employs the use of e-Authentication to ensure the security of your information that is submitted electronically in an application. e-Authentication is done through the use of Credential Providers. It is the process of determining, with certainty, that the person applying for the grant is who they are claiming to be in the application. The Credential Provider for Grants.gov is an organization called Operational Research Consultants (ORC). When you, as a grant applicant, are applying for a grant, you'll receive a username and password, which is then used to register with Grants.gov as an authorized organization representative, or in other words, as an individual designated as authorized to submit grant applications for your business or organization through Grants.gov. Once you've registered as an authorized organization representative, your EPOC is asked to validate the registration. Once your EPOC validates the request, the individual requesting authorized organiza!

tion representative's status for your organization will receive a notification via email confirming that you're not able to submit grant applications electronically through Grants.gov, which is the fastest and easiest way to expedite your grant application.

5. Register with Grants.gov.

As mentioned, when applying for a grant, it is necessary to register with Grants.gov as an authorized organization representative in order to submit a grant application electronically. According to Grants.gov and their instructions file, the E-Business Point of Contact (EPOC) listed on an organization's Central Contact Registry (CCR) registration will receive email notification stating that the grant applicant has registered to submit grants. The EPOC will then need to log onto the EBiz section of Grants.gov and assign the "Authorized Applicant" role to the grant applicant. Once the EPOC does this, the applicant will receive email notification stating that they have been designated as an AOR and will be able to submit applications through Grants.gov.

While there are many steps involved in applying for a grant, doing so online will move the process along much smoother and quicker than through traditional paperwork applications. The site offers user-friendly instructions and support tools, including a tutorial, a help section, a user guide, a quick reference section, and a frequent questions and answers section. Through this information, most questions and problems are addressed, and where something unusual occurs, personalized support is also available through the Grants.gov contact center.
