Funding & Research

The NHLBI Participation in the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act

As part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will receive a 34 percent increase to its FY 2009 budget to help stimulate the economy. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute leadership and stakeholders are very grateful for the opportunity to join the NIH to advance and accelerate the biomedical research agenda in this country by focusing on scientific opportunities and public health challenges.

To help potential applicants navigate ARRA-related information, the NHLBI developed the NHLBI Recovery Act section on its website. The NHLBI is working closely with the NIH and HHS to ensure that scientific merit and quality, as well as transparency and accountability, are the guiding principles behind the Institute’s implementation of the ARRA.
New information will be added as it is available.  For questions or comments, please email the NHLBI Web Manager.

Important Electronic Application Update

October 6, 2008 is migrating to forms that require the use of Adobe Reader, departing from its initial use of PureEdge forms and software for electronic submission of grant applications.

With some important exceptions, electronic submissions to NIH on or after Jan. 1, 2009, will need to be submitted on Adobe application forms, using Adobe Reader version 8.1.2 or above.

For complete information on this important change, consult the Electronic Submission of Grant Applications.
