In order to apply using Workspace and subscribe to funding opportunities, you need a Grants.gov account. Following the November 20th Release 16.1, it will be quicker for people to create an account with Grants.gov.
Simply click the Register link in the top-right corner of Grants.gov, then follow the on-screen instructions.
After registering an account, you can choose to continue with your work searching or managing funding opportunity subscriptions in the new Connect tab after the release. Or, you may choose to create a profile to associate with your organization using its DUNS number.
You are also able to manage multiple profiles within the account, but this is only necessary for those who support multiple organizations applying for federal grants. Representatives within each organization will assign access or the appropriate roles to a profile based on your job responsibilities. To contribute to a workspace application, you do not need roles.
Once the release goes live November 20th, updated instructions will be available on Grants.gov. If you have questions or hit a snag trying to register, help will be a click away in the form of the blue question-mark icon.
Note: You do not need to wait until Release 16.1 to register with Grants.gov. Accounts created prior to Release 16.1 are the same as those created afterward.
