Grants.gov and NIH are working hard to complete preparations for our transition to FORMS-H application packages. Although we’ll be all set well before our January 25, 2023 due dates, you may see some forms in FORMS-H application packages that still show old expiration dates. For example, the Research & Related or R&R forms managed by Grants.gov may still reflect a 12/31/2022 date although they were recently re-approved by the Office of Management and Budget for continued use. Also, the Public Health Services (PHS) application forms NIH updated to support the data sharing policy changes may still reflect the 09/30/2024 expiration date of their predecessors.
Don’t worry. Just choose the correct form set for your due date – FORMS-G for due dates on/before January 24, 2023 and FORMS-H for due dates on/after January 25, 2023 – we’ll take care of the rest.
The dates can be updated within the forms without any action on your part and we determine appropriate form usage based on form set (FORMS-G vs. FORMS-H) not individual form expiration dates.
