Dunn and Bradstreet Number Needed!
Standard Industrial Classification Code (SIC)
SIC Code: 9511
The federal government is now requiring all recipients of future Presidential disaster declarations funds to have a Dunn and Bradstreet number (also known as DUNS number or D&B number). You may ask what does this mean for my entity? The answer is simple, any applicant (county, towns, cities, townships, and any eligible private-non-profit organization) that may receive federal funds as a result of future disasters will need to apply for a DUNS number before FEMA will deem their entity an eligible applicant as a result of a Presidential disaster declaration. This is done by a phone call to Dunn and Bradstreet to register your entity and obtain a number. The phone number to Dunn and Bradstreet is 1-866-705-5711 and press 6 or you may apply via the internet at the following website: http://fedgov.dnb.com/webform and then click on Begin DUNS search request process.
It would be very advantageous for all Towns and Townships to register now if they do not already have a DUNS number. Without registering now for a DUNS number, it will slow down the process later if you are seeking FEMA assistance as a result of a Presidential disaster declaration. It is also important to note that there is no need to apply for a new DUNS number if your entity has previously registered and received a DUNS number. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jason Bauder.
