Get Notified When Grants Are Posted

When establishing your COMMBUYS vendor profile, be prepared to provide the name of your organization, address, email, and Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN), and be sure to include the dedicated grant commodity code or UNSPSC (00-00-00) in your COMMBUYS profile. Use our Quick Reference Guide to get registered.

Search for Grants

Buyer organizations also may use the COMMBUYS public search feature to find grant opportunities. From the COMMBUYS home page, select Contract & Bid Search and then Bids from the Advanced Search screen. Using the UNSPSC Segment Family drop-down menu, select 00-00 Grant Opportunity and hit Enter. Buyers also may use the provided fields to search for Grants.
