Organization Requirements for Ecology's Administration of Grants & Loans (EAGL)
To apply for grant or loan financial assistance from the
Department of Ecology, you must provide your organization’s
statewide vendor number, federal tax ID, and DUNS number to
Ecology’s EAGL Contact when requested during the registration
process. The EAGL Contact cannot grant access to EAGL until you
provide this information.
WARNING: Large organizations or departments within an
organization may have multiple statewide vendor numbers. Check
with your fiscal office to verify which statewide vendor number
and suffix you should use. This is important because the
statewide vendor number determines where and how Ecology sends payments.
Review the DES web page
Receiving Payment from the State for information and
frequently asked questions about registering to receive
payments, and the benefits of direct deposit to reduce
processing costs and payment delays.
Complete and send a
Statewide Payee Registration Form to DES to:

- DUNS Number
A DUNS number is a unique nine-character number used to
identify your organization. The federal government uses this
number to track how federal money is allocated. Ecology collects
this information even if you do not receive federal funding.
If your organization does not yet have a DUNS number, or no
one knows it, visit the
Bradstreet (D&B) website or call 1-866-705-5711 to register
or search for a DUNS number.
