SAM.GOV registration is required to apply for and receive grants

All eligible applicants must be registered and active in the System for Award Management (SAM) before you can submit an application. FEMA may not make an award to an entity until the entity has complied with the requirements to provide a valid DUNS number and maintain an active SAM registration with current information.

To register, or validate your information, please visit: https://www.sam.gov/SAM/

SAM.gov Registration Tips:

  • Please ensure the following items are current in SAM and the DUNS number used in SAM is the same one you use for all FEMA applications:
    • Organization’s name
    • Address
    • Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS)
    • Employer Identification Number (EIN)
    • Banking information (type of account (checking or saving), routing number, and account number)
  • Many websites may look official in appearance but are not. As a reminder, registration in the SAM.gov is FREE.
  • SAM.gov registration is only active for one year and must be renewed annually.
