NIH worked in close partnership with Grants.gov to create a web-based system to submit grant applications. ASSIST (the Application Submission System and Interface for Submission Tracking) is available as an option for submitting your R01 applications, as well as most individual career development (K) award applications. Read more about this NIH initiative on their website and access additional resources on the ASSIST website.
OCG Proposal Analysts have received formal training in using the ASSIST system and two Proposal Analysts have successfully used this submission method. Going forward, OCG will utilize ASSIST for submitting proposals.
If you have questions regarding ASSIST and your proposal submissions, please contact your Proposal Analyst.
