PAR-16-106 "Rapid Assessment of Zika Virus (ZIKV) Complications (R21)" is set-up to accept applications on a continuous basis from March 20, 2016 until February 28, 2019 rather than specifying exact due dates. We are updating our grant application forms to implement new requirements for grant applications for due dates on or after May 25, 2016 (FORMS-D; NOT-OD-16-004). This Notice announces our plans to update PAR-16-106 with FORMS-D application forms.

  • FORMS-C: On May 25, 2016 we will close the FORMS-C application package and it will no longer show as an option to download from Grants.gov or to initiate an application in ASSIST.

    We have configured our systems to continue to accept FORMS-C applications for this FOA through June 24, 2016. This allows applications started before May 25 to complete the submission process without disruption.
  • FORMS-D: On May 25, 2016 we will post a new FORMS-D application package. Any applications initiated on or after May 25, 2016 must use the FORMS-D application package. Use of FORMS-D will not impact the Council round to which an application is assigned.
