How to apply...
The standard application forms, as furnished by PHS, must be used by grant applicants. Application kits, containing the necessary forms and instructions, if not available at the applicant institution, may be obtained from the NIAAA. Consultation on proposed projects is also available. Preapplication consultation with NIAAA staff is required before submission of a Program Project grant application or any unsolicited new grant application requesting $500,000 or more direct costs in any one year. Applications are reviewed by nonfederal consultants recruited nationwide. The amount of the award and period of support are determined on the basis of the merit of the project. This program is subject to the provisions of 45 CFR, Part 92 for State and local governments and OMB Circular No. A-110 for nonprofit organizations. SBIR and STTR Grant Solicitations and SBIR Contract Solicitation may be obtained electronically through the NIH's "Small Business Funding Opportunities" home page at www.nih.gov/grants/funding/sbir.htm on the World Wide Web. A limited number of hard copies of these publications are produced. Subject to availability, they may be obtained by contacting the NIH support services contractor: phone: (301) 206-9385; fax: (301) 206-9722; e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. The Solicitations include submission procedures, review considerations, and grant application or contract proposal forms. SBIR and STTR grant applications should be submitted to the Center for Scientific Review, 6701 Rockledge Drive, Room 1040 - MSC 7710, Bethesda, MD 20892-7710.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Research Grants in support of projects recommended for approval by the National Advisory Council on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and approved for payment are awarded directly by the NIAAA to the applicant institution. All accepted SBIR/STTR applications are evaluated for scientific and technical merit by an appropriate scientific peer review panel and by a national advisory council or board. All applications receiving a priority score compete for available SBIR/STTR set-aside funds on the basis of scientific and technical merit and commercial potential of the proposed research, program relevance, and program balance among the areas of research.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
