ezFedGrants Recipient Customers,

In the event of a lapse in appropriations, the federal government will be shut down until further notice. While the system remains available to users, there will be no support provided for ezFedGrants until an appropriation bill is signed by the President and operations resume. If you experience an issue with ezFedGrants, please email the help desk at or via the “Contact USDA” feature in the application. Your inquiry will be answered when the help desk re-opens.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
