Forms for Grants - Business Programs
The links below provide access to commonly-required forms in Rural Development grant programs. Not all forms are required in all cases, so please consult with Rural Development staff.

 

Does the business borrower have DUNS number?

All RD grant and guaranteed loan applicants, except individuals & informal steering committees, must have a Dun & Bradstreet (D&B) Data Universal Numbering Systems number ("DUNS number") when applying.
A DUNS number is a requirement for virtually all applicants for Federal financial assistance, including businesses receiving a commercial loan with a Federal guarantee.

If you already have a DUNS number, you don't need to get a new one. To obtain this number, call D&B Federal Registration Department toll-free at 1-866-705-5711 and ask for a DUNS number.
It free & takes only 5 minutes. A D&B agent will ask for some basic information and then assign you a DUNS number over the phone. You may also obtain a DUNS number online --
http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform -- but we do not recommend this because we have heard of instances where parties have had to pay to get their DUNS number.

 

Are you registered on the Central Contractor Registration (CCR)?
All RD grant applicants, except individuals & informal steering committees, must 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 (see above). To complete a CCR registration, go to http://www.ccr.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). It takes 1-3 days for CCR registration to take effect, so please do not put this off. If your 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.
