New NIH Grant Submission Policy Allows Only One Resubmission
Steve Baragona

Beginning January 25, 2009, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will allow grant applications to be amended and resubmitted only once. The intention is to allow high-quality research to be funded earlier.

One of the key findings of an NIH internal review was that the proportion of grant applications approved on the first submission is declining, while the proportion approved after multiple amendments has increased. With funding tightening, NIH expects that decreasing the number of resubmissions will allow more high-quality grants to be funded on first submission. The policy also is intended to reduce the burden on reviewers, as well as applicants.

Under the new policy, grant applications that are not funded after one resubmission should be redesigned substantially. More information on the policy change is available online.
