  1. I’m still not receiving email updates on all the grant opportunities that I included in the filtered search!


    1. You will need to create/register an account on Grants.gov and then re-create your saved search notifications. As of the last release, accounts are required in order to receive notifications about funding opportunities. (Previously, you were not required to create an account — you only needed to list an email.) Here’s how to register: https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/register.html


      1. I have an account. I’ve had an account since 2008. I also created a new one at the beginning of the year and that is why I made the comment.


      2. As mentioned in the previous reply, you will need to log in and recreate your saved search notifications. If you recreated your saved search notifications after Nov. 20 and are still not receiving the emails, then we recommend contacting the Grants.gov Support team, as they can access your account and determine the issue: call 1-800-518-4726 or send an email to support@grants.gov.


  2. Hello good morning, I’m a first timer at this , is there any grants or funding out there for small business owners ? Thank you for your time.
