Use New Forms for NIH Grant Applications due on or after May 25, 2020
NIH applications due on or after May 25, 2020 must use FORMS-F application forms and guidance. The new form set is expected to be available on February 25, 2020, and the How to Apply—Application Guide page is expected to be updated by March 25, 2020.
Note that during the transition period, previously issued, active FOAs with due dates on or after May 25, 2020 will be updated to add FORMS-F application packages between February 25, 2020 and March 25, 2020. This means that both form packages will be available for most FOAs over a period of several months. The applicant is responsible for selecting the appropriate form set whenever both are active within a FOA. Be sure to choose the form set that matches your intended due date.
