Grant Recipient Reminder!
All RD grant applicants must be registered in the System for Awards Management (SAM). Central Contractor Registraion (CCR) 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 your
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 may take 1-3 days for registration to take effect, so please do not put this off. If you were
previously registered in CCR, that information has been transferred to SAM. Please be sure your information is current and accurate. If you receive an RD award,
you must keep your SAM information current, updating it at least annually, until your award project is complete.
