Available Funding and Grants

This section offers information on the following available funding opportunities:

Requests for Applications (RFAs)
Identifies a more narrowly defined area for which one or more NIH institutes have set aside funds for awarding grants. An RFA usually has a single receipt (received on or before) date specified in the announcement and it is reviewed by a Scientific Review Group convened by the awarding Institute or Division.

Requests for Proposals (RFPs)
An RFP solicits contract proposals and usually has one receipt date, as specified in the solicitation.

Program Announcements (PAs)
PAs identify areas of increased priority and/or emphasis on particular funding mechanisms for a specific area of science. They remain active for 3 years from date of release unless the announcement indicates a specific expiration date or the NIH Institute/Center (I/C) inactivates sooner.

These announce policy and procedures, changes to RFA or PA announcements, RFPs, and other general information items.
