Keeping Track of the Latest NIH Policy Changes


NIH informs the research community of policy changes through notices in the NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts (often referred to as the NIH Guide). These policy notices supersede information in the NIH Grants Policy Statement and compliance with these policy updates become a term and condition of award. Each fall, our policy team incorporates these notices into an annual update of the Grants Policy Statement.

Here are a couple of tips to remain well-informed of current policy between annual Grants Policy Statement updates:

  1. Subscribe to our Friday e-mails that list all the notices and opportunity postings to the NIH Guide for the week.
  2. Periodically refer to our Notices of NIH Policy Changes page (especially before submitting applications or reports).
