Grants.gov user registration is quick, easy, and free of charge.

Grants.gov regularly receives a significant amount of queries from users hoping to apply for personal financial assistance from the federal government. These individuals might be looking for home repair grants or forms of disability assistance.
Every month, hundreds of federal funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) are published on Grants.gov. The programs represented range widely across categories like space science, healthcare, law enforcement, job training, human rights, climate change and much, much more.
In this post, we highlight ten of the most-viewed funding opportunity announcements from 2019. (Note: Some of these opportunities have already closed and are no longer accepting applications.)
These ten FOAs are reflective of the vast array of opportunities published on Grants.gov every week. If you’d like to keep up with the funding opportunity announcements posted on Grants.gov, you can create saved searches for each area of interest. You will be notified when an opportunity matching your interest is published.
This week’s edition of Federal Funding Spotlight contains a curated list of open opportunities in the fields of science and technology, including opportunities from the National Science Foundation, NASA, the Department of Defense and the Department of Commerce.

If you have spent a year or more in the federal grants world – whether as an applicant or as a federal employee – you may have noted the wide range of federal grant systems that are used across the government.
It is lesser known among grant pros that Grants.gov has created a range of web services – often called application programming interfaces (or APIs) outside the grant world – that system administrators can use to link their grant systems to Grants.gov.
An example of this from everyday life is a blogging platform that gives users the option to publish a blog post via a third-party email client (by sending an email to a specific address).
Similarly, Grants.gov can integrate with other grant systems to streamline workflows for both applicants and grantors. Grants.gov refers to this type of integration as System-to-System (S2S).
We value your feedback and want to improve Grants.gov, so we currently have two website usability activities—card sorting and tree test—open for your input until this Friday, May 25, 2018. We asked the #GrantChat community for their feedback:
