In addition to the training and instructional resources available to aid with your grant search and application process, we have a support team ready to help you by phone (1-800-518-4726) or email.
Before you pick up the phone to call, though, we have answers to the most common questions asked by people who are the Electronic Business Point of Contact (EBiz POC) for their organization.
Wait, what’s an ‘EBiz POC’?
If you are not familiar with the abbreviation, the EBiz POC is often an organization’s chief financial officer or authorizing official. The EBiz POC is likely the person who first registers your organization on SAM.gov and may also complete the annual renewal of SAM registration in order to do business with the federal government.
We say “often”, “likely”, and “may” in the previous sentences because this can vary for each organization. While there is only one EBiz POC per organization in SAM, more than one person per organization may access SAM.gov to complete these tasks.
How do I reset the EBiz POC password at Grants.gov?
On the click the Forgot My Password/Unlock My Account link. Then enter your organization’s DUNS Number, and the EBiz POC will receive an email with a temporary password. Log in using that and change your password after logging in.
How do I reassign roles if I am the EBiz POC?
After logging in as the EBiz POC, go to the Manage Applicants page. From there, you can use the Manage Roles link to add or remove roles from users within your organization.
Who should I contact if I have questions about the System for Award Management (SAM) and renewing our SAM registration?

The SAM Update page on GSA.gov may also be helpful.
