What’s in a name? A funding opportunity announcement (FOA) by any other name would sound as sweet.
NIH advertises available grant support through funding opportunities that provide information on the award, who is eligible to apply, the evaluation criteria for selection of an awardee, required components of an application, and how to submit an application.
In an effort to standardize terminology across the government, NIH is joining other federal agencies in using the term notices of funding opportunities (NOFOs) rather than funding opportunity announcements (FOAs). You will see both terms in use while we work to update our websites and resources.
