SAM.gov Entity Validation Update

GSA implemented a new process to validate an entity’s legal business name and physical address when requesting a Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) and for completing a SAM.gov entity registration.  Due to a high volume of requests, entity validations are taking longer than expected to process.  This validation process is now taking 7-10 business days, and in some cases longer.

OJP strongly recommends starting your SAM.gov registration process as soon as possible to allow the time necessary to process entity validations well in advance of the Grants.gov due date posted in the solicitation.  Read this FAQ for more information.

See below for a list of all currently open OJP funding opportunities, with links to the full text of the solicitation where you can locate information on how to apply. We encourage you to check out the Applicant Resources section of the site for information and training on writing and submitting an application. If you are looking for funding opportunities released in previous years or that closed during the current fiscal year, go to the Past Funding Opportunities page.
