The National Institutes of Health has announced that there is a new, currently optional, login method to access eRA Commons, Commons Mobile, ASSIST, and IAR using login.gov.
eRA’s move to two-factor authentication via login.gov is part of HHS’ Reinvent Grants Management Initiative to provide the applicant and grantee community the ability to log in to four different grants systems (eRA, Grants.gov, GrantSolutions.gov, and Payment Management System) using the same account via login.gov. Two-factor authentication will help ensure the security of your personal information.
Note that use of login.gov is currently optional and you may continue to log in using your eRA Commons credentials or federated account credentials if you prefer.
If you do not have a login.gov account, you will need to create a login.gov account and then associate it to your existing eRA Commons account.
