Recent updates to the Grants.gov system have brought welcome new features for users at federal grant-making agencies. These enhancements are discussed in detail in the online user guide. Below, we provide an overview of the changes, along with links to help resources.
New: Login with your PIV card
Grantors can now link a PIV or CAC card to their Grants.gov account. Doing so will give users the option of accessing their account with either the PIV/CAC card or their username and password.
New: Copy funding opportunity announcements (FOAs)
Grantors can now copy an FOA with a forecast and/or synopsis and use the copied record as a starting point for posting a new or a related opportunity. This feature can make the posting process more efficient.
New: Save an opportunity announcement as a Draft
Grantors can now save an FOA as a draft, allowing for non-public updates and revisions that can be made as needed until the FOA is published on Grants.gov.
