General Information

These pre-application materials will assist you in properly setting up and managing your grant. Many grants are maintained in the Continuous Comprehensive Improvement System (CCIP). In order to access CCIP, you must have a OH|ID account. Information on OH|ID accounts and other information to get you started with successfully managing your grant are below. Additionally, grantees receiving federal financial assistance must have a Unique Entity ID (UEI). After an organization receives a UEI, the number must also be added to the Ohio Education Director (OEDS).
