Helpful Tips

Registering for SAM.gov

The Shuttered Venue Operators Grant application process is preceded by the need to register at SAM.gov.

Individuals or businesses already engaged in work with the Federal government should already have a SAM.gov account. If you’re new to the system, our PowerPoint is designed to simplify the approach to registration on that site. Please follow it, and feel free to share it with friends. Don’t let a seemingly complicated prerequisite deter you from applying for the SVOG!
