OSBM maintains the Grants Management System to assist state funding agencies in managing State financial assistance in accordance with G.S. 143C-6-23 and 09 NCAC 03M. These statutes and administrative rules cover the disbursement and use of state funds to non-state entities, including federal funds that flow through the state treasury. The Grants System serves as a central repository of state grant-funded assistance programs and awards. State funding agencies are required to register state assistance programs and awards with OSBM.

To access the Grants Management System state agency users will need a user id and password.  If you do not yet have a user id and password, please download and complete the CRIS and NCGrants Access Authorization Form and email it to

The system is for state agency users only. If you are a grant recipient or an organization seeking grant information, please see our grant recipient information

For instructions on how to use the Grants Management System, please download the Grants System Help Guide, which includes step-by-step screen shots. For additional information, see our Frequently Asked Questions.

OSBM also maintains the Suspension of Funding List (SOFL) for non-compliant grant recipients. Per 09 NCAC 03M, agencies shall not disburse any State financial assistance to an entity that is on the Suspension of Funding list. The SOFL is updated on a weekly basis. If you would like to be added to the SOFL distribution list, please contact


Grant information tracked and reported in the Grants Management System is available to the public through OpenBudget. OpenBudget provides information on awarded grants, awarded contracts, and state-administered grant programs.
