SAM.gov Entity Registration and Renewal Reminder
All entities seeking Department of Justice (DOJ) grant funding must have an active registration in SAM.gov. Once registered, entities must complete annual renewals to maintain an active status.
It is recommended that you begin the SAM.gov registration or renewal process 30 days prior to any deadlines to allow for the time necessary to complete the full process, including SAM.gov’s entity validation process. If you intend to apply for a specific DOJ opportunity, refer to the Grants.gov due date provided on the solicitation, and plan your SAM.gov registration accordingly.
For additional support, visit SAM.gov Help.
- Submit an SF-424 and an SF-LLL in Grants.gov.
- Submit the full application including attachments in JustGrants.
Please read the solicitation document carefully for further guidance.
We encourage you to visit the JustGrants Application Submission training page that includes training videos, job aids, and other information as a resource for your applicants.
