Grants Policy

NIH has a number of grant policies that are relevant to NIH SBIR and STTR grantees and those interested in applying for an NIH SBIR or STTR award.

NIH Late Submission Policy: Replaces NOT-OD-11-035, and extends the late window for application submissions to two weeks.

Updated Policy on SBIR/STTR Organization Eligibility in Cases of Legal Action that Changes Small Business Status:  updates policy on SBIR/STTR organizational eligibility in cases of legal action, such as merger, acquisition, or successor-in-interest, that changes the small business concern (SBC) organizational status so that the organization is no longer eligible for the SBIR/STTR program.
