Upcoming Grants.gov Downtime: Plan Ahead for Proposal Impacts

The Grants.gov production system will be down for its their planned maintenance window as follows:

  • Offline Saturday, May 18, 2024 at 12:01 AM ET
  • Back Online Tuesday, May 21, 2024 at 6:00 AM ET

During this maintenance window, depending on the system used to prepare and submit proposals, users can expect disruptions in creating new applications, updating existing applications, checking for errors, submitting applications, and getting status updates.

All sponsors and systems that rely on Grants.gov may be impacted. This includes the NIH, NSF, Dept. of Defense, Dept. of Education, USAID, AHRQ, and others. Proposal submission systems impacted include Grants.Gov Workspace, ASSIST, Research.gov, and the UW’s Grant Runner feature in SAGE.
