NIDA is working to reduce the number of specialized Program Announcements (PA) published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts to streamline the application process for our applicant community. Rather than navigating a large number of specialized PAs, NIDA created a website ( ) detailing the areas of science with the highest priority for NIDA that leverage parent FOAs to solicit topic-specific applications in these areas. This website will provide information to the research community all in one location. The NIDA Topics of Interests (DAT) site provides links to detailed descriptions of the scientific/research topics of interest, contact information for NIDA program staff with relevant expertise, as well as list of the most relevant parent FOAs that can be used to submit applications in these areas of interest.

NIDA will continue to publish Requests for Applications (RFAs) and Program Announcements as needed to accommodate special receipt dates or review considerations.
