The Grants.gov website is undergoing changes to provide users with a more intuitive and responsive experience.
The Grants.gov production site will be updated with a new look and feel following October maintenance. The Grants.gov Production site will be unavailable during the scheduled downtime maintenance period of October 28-31.
Here’s what you can look forward to:
- Enhanced User Experience: The new interface will feel more user-friendly, fresh, and modern.
- Responsive Design: Grants.gov will now be accessible on most devices.
- Enhanced Security: The upgraded website will feature enhanced security measures.
- Alignment with Federal Standards: Grants.gov will align with the United States Web Design System (USWDS), a federal standard designed to provide accessible and mobile-friendly websites to all users.
Your Grants.gov Content Remains Unchanged
Rest assured, while the look and feel of the site are getting a makeover, the content you rely on will remain the same. You’ll find the same valuable resources and information, now presented in a more user-friendly format.
Action Required: Check Your Bookmarks
Please take a moment on or after October 31, 2023, to check the URLs of any bookmarks you may have for Grants.gov. Some page URLs may change, so updating your bookmarks will ensure uninterrupted access to Grants.gov resources.
What to Expect Next
While many sections of the site will reflect the new look and feel, some sections, including post-login pages such as applicant, grantor, and subscription pages, are still pending updates. Some functionalities, such as Chatbot, may not be available immediately following the release. However, these functionalities will be included in the follow-up releases.
