Funding Overview

NIAID accepts diagnostics grant applications submitted through two general types of funding opportunities, Investigator-initiated funding opportunities and applications submitted in response to Request for Application (RFA) announcements.

There are a variety of Parent Announcements applicants may use to submit their Investigator-initiated research projects including R01, R03, R21 activity codes, as well as funding opportunities available to Small Businesses (see below). Each Parent Announcement has three receipt dates per year.

In addition to investigator-initiated funding opportunities, NIAID periodically releases Request for Application (RFA) announcements to stimulate targeted research by requesting grant applications in a well-defined scientific area such as diagnostics development. Unlike the Parent Announcements, RFAs have a single receipt date and identify funds set aside and the number of awards likely to be made.
