SRSA Applicant Information

SRSA Application Deadline: April 16, 2021

Steps for Applying for an SRSA Grant:

  1. Obtain a Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number, if your LEA does not already have one. An LEA can obtain a DUNS number for free through the Dun & Bradstreet Website. After submitting a request, you should receive a DUNS number within 1-2 business days.
  1. If your LEA has a DUNS number, verify that the DUNS number registration is active in the System for Award Management (SAM).
    • An LEA must be registered in SAM and have a DUNS number that is active in SAM in order to access SRSA funds.
    • Registering your DUNS number with SAM is FREE of cost. You do not need to pay a third-party vendor to register your DUNS number with SAM.
    • For additional information, log into your account on or call 1-866-606-8220 to reactivate your LEA’s DUNS number registration annually.
    • You can also use the Live Chat to connect with a SAM agent directly.
    • To receive a status update on your SAM registration enter your LEA’s DUNS number into the SAM Status Tracker.
  1. Complete the SRSA application during the application period. See the Notice of Application Deadline published in the Federal Register for official notice of the SRSA application timeframe, as well as the required procedures for submitting an SRSA application.
