Range of Approval/Disapproval Time
From 240 to 270 days from submission of application for grant support. SBIR/STTR applications about 7-1/2 months. AIDS related research applications about 6 months.
Not applicable. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.
This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units
prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.
A principal investigator (P.I.) may appeal the substantive or procedural aspects of the review of his/her application by communicating with the staff of the Institute. A description of the NIH Peer Review Appeals procedures is available on the NIH home page www.nih.gov/grants/guide/1997/97.11.21/n2.html.
In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission
of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or
applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
Support is recommended for a specified project period, usually not in excess of 5 years. Prior to termination of a project period, the grantee may apply for renewal of support for a new project period. An application for renewal is processed as a competing request. Small Grants and Exploratory/Developmental Grants are not renewable, but grantees may apply for research project grants on the same topics.
In some instances, renewal procedures may be the same as for the application procedure, e.g., for projects of a non-continuing nature renewals will be treated as new, competing applications; for projects of an ongoing nature, renewals may be given annually.
