NIH to Release Restructured Grant Application Forms for Submissions Targeting Due Dates On or After January 25, 2010

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced on September 16, 2009 that it will release new versions of the PHS 398 and SF 424 grant application packages and instructions by December 2009. Changes include significantly shorter page limits and restructured application packages. All new or resubmission applications, whether paper or electronic, targeting due dates on or after January 25, 2010 must use the new application forms and instructions (even if the initial submission followed the current application forms and instructions). New parent announcements will be issued at the same time that the new application packages become available. Additionally, all active Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) will be updated. Applicants must return to the FOA (or the reissued parent announcement) to download the new application forms and instructions for due dates on or after January 25, 2010.
