Electronic Research Administration (eRA)

eRA logo


Provides electronic systems support to manage the receipt, processing, review, award, and monitoring of billions of dollars worth of research and non-research grants awarded annually. These grants are funded by NIH (in support of the mission of improving human health) and eRA’s partner agencies.


eRA’s vision is to be a vital partner in advancing NIH’s efforts — to increase the healthy life expectancy of all people and reduce the burdens of illness and disability—by facilitating the funding of medical research through its grants systems.
