SBIR/STTR Due Dates Are Changing

NIH’s standard due dates for the small business innovation research (SBIR) and small business technology transfer research (STTR) programs are changing. These changes are in response to small business community feedback, congressional mandates, and recommendations from the NIH Scientific Management Review Board to decrease delays between submission and award funding.

The next standard due date for these programs is April 5, 2015, and there will not be an August 5, 2015 due date. From then on, SBIR/STTR due dates will fall on September 5, January 5, and April 5, as described in the NIH Guide.

The current SBIR and STTR Grant Omnibus funding opportunity anouncements are being extended one cycle during the transition, to allow submissions on the April 5, 2015 due date and May 7, 2015 AIDS/AIDS-related due date.

Be sure to review the following NIH Guide announcements if you are considering an application to the SBIR/STTR programs:
