Greetings APHIS cooperative agreement and grants recipients/cooperators:
In our last communication to you we told you that we would notify you when the ezFedGrants system would be available to request access. The time is now! We are excited to present the ezFedGrants external portal to you. As mentioned in previous communications, you must first have received eAuthentication Level II access.
If you have eAuth Level II, please access the portal at https://nfc.usda.gov/FSS/ClientServices/ezFedGrants/index.php and select the Launch ezFedGrants icon.
If you do not have eAuth level II User Id and password you must request it through your Local Registration Authority Locations. See the attached job aid ezFedGrants External Portal Request for eAuth and GAO Access (DOCX) for instructions that will walk you through the eAuth and ezFedGrants access.
