NIH Grants Policy Statement
The NIH Grants Policy Statement (NIHGPS) makes available, in a single document, the policy requirements that serve as the terms and conditions of NIH grant awards. By accepting an award, grantees agree to comply with the requirements in the NIH Grants Policy Statement except where the notice of award states otherwise. Notices of policy changes [link] published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts can supersede information in the NIH Grants Policy Statement. Compliance with these policy updates also becomes a term and condition of award. NIH incorporates these notices into the annual update of the NIH Grants Policy Statement.
