If you are submitting a proposal as part of DRS Round 7, we want to alert you that grants.gov will be down for maintenance in the days leading up to the deadline. The system will be down for maintenance from Saturday November 17 at 12:01am until Monday November 19 at 6:00am. Check out the System Enhancements & Server Maintenance Outages Calendar on grants.gov.
We strongly encourage you to log in to grants.gov as soon as possible. Find the opportunity you’re applying for and create a workspace. If you get an error message then contact the grants.gov help desk at 1-800-518-4726. It could take 24-48 hours to remedy any issues. Be careful of waiting until the last minute when submitting your proposal could be in jeopardy.
We also recommend beginning data now (if you haven’t already started!) and completing it by Friday November 16, before grants.gov goes down for maintenance.The maintenance on grants.gov is a bump in the road to submission, but with early planning trouble can be avoided.
