Upcoming Grants.gov Maintenance will Impact Proposal Submissions


Grants.gov will be moving its servers to the cloud and will be unavailable from September 23 through September 29. This will impact faculty and staff working in Grants.gov or eResearch Proposal Management (eRPM) submitting to a federal agency. 
To ensure faculty and staff are able to successfully submit federal grant proposals that are due during this maintenance period, please refer to the following guidance:

What Will Be Affected During this Time?

How to Prepare? 

  • Determine submission plans for late September/early October now.
  • Download sponsor guidelines before September 23
  • Create a PAF and complete item 1.6, select the FOA, pull down the forms, and save the PAF before September 23.
  • Review specific federal agency guidance related to your FOA and this outage frequently.
  • If possible, we recommend you submit early for any opportunity that receives an extension to October 3. This will be the first major deadline after Grants.gov moves to the cloud, and there is potential for technical issues to arise, placing your proposal at risk.  

Important Notes

  • The U-M Proposal Submission Deadline Policy still applies.
  • Any submissions that are done via email, mail, or other online submissions (except ASSIST and Grants.gov Workspace) are not impacted.
