The National Institutes for Health (NIH) has released new Proposal Policies and Procedures that affect all NIH proposals with deadlines on or after May 25, 2016. The NIH periodically updates grant application forms in order to remain current with the most recent form sets available through Grants.gov and approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). Effective with any NIH proposals due on or after May 25, 2016, the application package will contain the “FORMS-D” application form. The new FORMS-D will also include other changes to the PHS forms included in the Grants.gov application package. The list of significant changes can be found here.
General Instructions for NIH and Other PHS Agencies (effective May 25, 2016) can be found here.
