New Info Required for Loans & Grants!
All RD grant applicants must now be registered in the Central Contractor Registration (CCR). CCR registration is a requirement for virtually all parties seeking Federal financial assistance, not just government contractors. In order to register, you will first need a DUNS number. To complete a CCR registration, go to www.sam.gov, create an account (ID and password), and provide the required information (including DUNS#, Tax ID#, statistical information about your business, and Electronic Funds Transfer Information for payments). Be aware that it takes 1-3 days for CCR registration to take effect, so please do not put this off. If you are already registered in CCR, be sure your information is current and accurate. If you receive an RD award, you must keep your CCR information current, updating it at least annually, until your award project is complete.
