Attention SAMHSA Grant Applicants
Required Electronic Grant Application Submission
Beginning in Fiscal Year 2013, SAMHSA discretionary grant applications, including new and continuation, must be submitted electronically through Grants.gov. SAMHSA will not accept paper applications except when a waiver of this requirement is approved by SAMHSA.
Individual applicants may request a waiver of electronic submission, for instance, if they do not have the technological means or their physical location receives poor quality or intermittent connection to the internet. More information about a waiver and the process to apply will be forthcoming on the SAMHSA website in November and in each Funding Announcement. Any questions may be directed to the Division of Grant Review, 240 276-1199.
Information on the advance registration necessary to submit applications in Grants.gov may be found on the portal website. The Organization Registration Checklist (PDF 357KB), found in the link below, provides registration guidance for a company, institution, state, local or tribal government, or other type of organizations submitting for the first time through Grants.gov. While registration takes approximately 3-5 business days, Grants.gov recommends that applicants allow 4 weeks for completion of all steps in the registration process. SAMHSA strongly encourages any organization intending to apply to a SAMHSA program to follow the Organization Registration Checklist and to register now.
