This page provides an overview of the Grants Management Modernization (GMM) initiative, reviews FEMA GO user roles, touches on the importance of SAM.gov in FEMA GO, and presents key functionalities needed to successfully begin navigating the system.
Grants Technology Division Expected Outcomes:
FEMA GO will replace the legacy systems currently used to manage FEMA grants, but the legacy systems won't go offline until their functionality has been fully tested and validated in the new system. So have no fear, your data is here and will remain secure and available. GTD Expected Outcomes:
Improved technology to meet business needs
Simplified grants life cycle processes
Improved timeliness of grant awards to survivors and communities
Access to complete and accurate grants data in one system
FEMA GO and SAM.gov:
The FEMA Grants Outcomes (FEMA GO) system automatically imports certain information from an organization’s active SAM record, including the organization’s legal name, mailing and physical address, EIN, DUNS and DUNS +4 numbers, and the Electronic Business Point of Contact (eBIZ POC).
This information is automatically added to a grant application. As part of your application, you must verify that the organizational information imported from SAM is correct.
If awarded a grant, financial transactions conducted between your organization and FEMA will utilize the banking institution information contained in your SAM record.
Updates made to your SAM record can take up to 48 hours to reflect in FEMA GO. Updates may include details on an organization’s core information or changing the individual listed as the ‘Electronic Business Point of Contact’ (eBIZ POC).
If you create or re-activate a SAM record, it generally takes 24-48 hours before the FEMA GO system recognizes the updates and allows you to register your organization or begin an application.
