*UNIQUE ENTITY ID (UEI) REPLACING DUNS NUMBER*
Nevada Arts Council grants are partially made up of federal funds from the National Endowment for the Arts. The federal government previously required organizations and public institutions to have a DUNS number to receive federal grant awards, but they have transitioned to the new Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) through SAM.gov as the primary identifier for all entities receiving federal funds. Beginning in 2022, all organizations and public institutions applying for funding from the Nevada Arts Council will be required to have a Unique Entity ID (UEI) from SAM.gov in alignment with requirements from the National Endowment for the Arts. Individuals applying for Nevada Arts Council funding do not need to have a Unique Entity ID (UEI).
What Action Do You Need to Take?
- If your entity is registered in SAM.gov today, your Unique Entity ID (SAM UEI) has already been assigned and is viewable in SAM.gov. This includes inactive registrations. The new SAM Unique Entity ID is currently located below the DUNS Number on your entity registration record. You must be signed in to your SAM.gov account to view .
- If you are not already registered in SAM.gov, please refer to the Quick Guide to Getting a Unique Entity ID to get a SAM Unique Entity ID (SAM) for your organization without having to complete a full entity registration.
