Have a Question about
NIH Grant Policies or Procedures?



One of the best sources of information about NIH grant policies and procedures relating to application preparation and review issues is your institution--e.g., office of sponsored research, the business office, or a research administrator. It is wise to consult with your own organization officials for advice and guidance before preparing your grant application.

The NIH website is another rich source of information where you will find the homepages of NIH institutes and offices, NIH personnel directory, news and events, reports, statistics, other informational documents, and contacts for assistance with a grant-related question.
