NIH Offers New Ways to Track Funding Opportunities–Tweet!


Get fast access to NIH funding opportunities through Twitter and XML. Applicants and applicant institutions can now track grant opportunities through the social networking site Twitter and an XML feed that updates nightly to reflect the latest information on active funding opportunities.

Twitter allows NIH to post links to Funding Opportunity Announcements in a format no longer than a text message. Our weekly RSS news feed simply “tweets” to Twitter so that researchers and grant applicants can find NIH funding news quickly. Follow us at You can also find general NIH health news at

Our XML feed provides institutional information systems with a comprehensive list of all active Funding Opportunity Announcements. This is not a replacement for the weekly RSS feed; rather, it provides a comprehensive list of all active FOAs. We hope that IT systems at applicant organizations will find this to be a convenient tool for connecting researchers at their institutions to NIH funding opportunities. The XML Feed can be found at
