NIH, AHRQ, CDC, FDA and NIOSH to Release Updated Electronic Application Forms – ADOBE-FORMS-B2
The ADOBE-FORMS-B2 packages will be used with new funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) posted on/after July 22, 2011. In addition, NIH will reissue R01, R03, and R21 parent announcements with the new forms on July 22 and expire the current parent R01, R03, and R21 FOAs on January 8, 2012 . Applicants may use either the current parent FOAs with ADOBE-FORMS-B1 or the new parent FOAs with ADOBE-FORMS-B2 packages for deadlines on/before January 7, 2012, but NIH strongly encourages applicants to use ADOBE-FORMS-B2 whenever possible. Applicants downloading forms from the current parent announcements will encounter a splash screen directing them to the new parent announcements once they are posted.
