Hello Raman.

I would understand both of them, but I consider 'granted to' to be correct - and 'granted for' to be 'acceptable, but not perfect', in this sentence.

"Grant" is one of the type of verb which can have two objects (without preposition) so it is also correct to say:
"We have granted you access . . ."

************
It is also normal to use "access to somewhere".

So it would be:
"We have granted you access to the share-point site."
"We have granted access to you to the share-point site." - I don't like this one, as it uses 'to' in two different ways.
