How Do I Know If I Have the NIH Right Forms, & What Do I Do If I Don’t?

Most of you are aware that NIH is updating their application forms (NOT-OD-16-081).  You must use FORMS-D forms and instructions for due dates on or after May 25, 2016 and you must use FORMS-C for due dates on or before May 24, 2016.

If you’re not sure how to tell the difference between FORMS-C and D, check out the NIH resource, Do I Have the Right Electronic Forms for My Application?

It is imperative that you choose the correct application forms for your due date and submit on time.  Incorrect form selection is not a sufficient reason to submit a late application.  If you’ve selected the incorrect forms and instructions for your due date, you’ll need to switch to the correct forms before submission.  ASSIST users can take advantage of the “copy application” feature to easily move data from one form version to another.
