This blog post was updated on March 21, 2020, to note that Login.gov integration will be turned on in the coming weeks, following the release.
In mid-March, Grants.gov will roll out its Release 18.1 system enhancements. These enhancements include new integration with Login.gov, the ability to narrow searches via a new category called Opportunity Zone Benefits, and field label changes that will lay the foundation for the planned December rollout of the Unique Entity Identifier by the System for Award Management (SAM.gov).
With Release 18.1, applicants will be able to link a Login.gov account to their Grants.gov account. [Editor’s Note: Login.gov integration will be turned on in the coming weeks, following the release.]
The process for doing this will be simple: A user will click the Login.gov button (pictured here) and enter a Login.gov username and password on the next screen. The user will then be directed back to Grants.gov to log in with their Grants.gov username and password and complete the account linking process.
After linking the two accounts, users will be able to access Grants.gov using their Login.gov credentials, if they choose.
