Reminders for Applications With January 7, 2018 Due Date

Applicants targeting the January 7, 2018 receipt date, make sure you choose an active funding opportunity announcement (FOA) and use FORMS-D. In some cases, a FOA has been reissued with FORMS-E, but the previous FOA that uses FORMS-D is still active for due dates before January 25, 2018. That includes most FOAs that accept AIDS and AIDS-related applications. For example, use NIH Research Project Grant (Parent R01) and NIH Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Program (Parent R21).

Keep in mind, unless explicitly stated in the FOA, investigator-initiated clinical trials will be accepted by NIAID only through the FOAs listed in NIAID Policy: Investigator-Initiated Clinical Trials.

See our past articles “Take Note of Special Cases for Transition Dates to FORMS-E” and “The January 7, 2018 due date is on a Sunday. When is my application really due?” for additional details.
