Applicants applying to NIH funding opportunities with due dates on or after January 25, 2023 must use updated application forms and instructions identified with a Competition ID of “FORMS-H” (NOT-OD-22-195).
The primary change to the updated application forms is the addition of an “Other Plan(s)” attachment on the PHS 398 Research Plan and PHS 398 Career Development Supplemental forms as part of the implementation of the 2023 NIH Data Management and Sharing Policy. Applicants must attach the required Data Management and Sharing Plan in this new field in FORMS-H applications (NOT-OD-22-189).
Although NIH Data Sharing Policies are not applicable to institutional training or fellowship applications, the “Other Plan(s)” attachment was also added to the PHS 398 Research Training Program Plan and PHS Fellowship Supplemental forms for potential future use with other plans.
Application guides for FORMS-H application packages will be posted to the How to Apply – Application Guide page no later than October 25, 2022.
