Questions and Responses About Account Registration

I attempted to open my account in the Govgrants portal and was told my account is disabled. Any assistance with this would be invaluable.

All organizations must register in the NEW TVC Grants Portal found on Apply Home.

If we are already registered on the old portal, do we still have to register for the new portal?

If an organization is seeking grant funding for 2023-2024 grant period, the organization must register in the NEW TVC Grants Portal.

We are a County government with a VSO and VTC program. We seek funding for both. In the Grants Portal, should the top left dropdown menu in the portal list two organizations (the programs), or just one (the County)?

The county is the organization and all applications should be listed under the organization name.

We want to edit our organizations tab but it is not letting us after we saved and started to “apply for funding”. Can we go back and make edits once the organization is validated?

Once an organization has been validated, their organization information cannot be changed.

It states that our organization has not been validated.

Please refer to the TVC Grants Portal User Guide, page 21. Select Submit AFTER the Save and Close in order for the organization to be validated.
