Grants.gov is the federal-wide site listing all grant opportunities available from the U.S. Federal Government. At UF, we use UFIRST SF424 to create and submit grant applications into Grants.gov.

Attention: A workspace can be created only if all of the funding opportunity’s forms are compatible with Workspace. If there are any incompatible forms, the Create a Workspace option will not be available.
Register in Grants.gov
If you are not already registered in grants.gov with the Manage Workspace Role, please request an account in Grants.gov.
Additional users can be added to the application to edit data on forms within the workspace(s) by initiating Manage Workspace Role User. Additional users not already registered in Grants.gov need to register at the Grants.gov Registration webpage.
Once the registration form is completed and submitted in Grants.gov, DSP will receive an email for approval. Once approved by DSP, the registered user will receive an email confirmation.
