The 2015 Omnibus Grant Solicitations of the NIH, CDC, FDA and ACF are now available for the SBIR and STTR (NIH only) programs.

The 2015 SBIR/STTR Omnibus solicitations and accompanying resources can be found below:

Standard Application Due Dates: September 5, 2015; January 5, 2016; and April 5, 2016.

Please note that HHS recently changed the Standard Due Dates for ALL HHS SBIR/STTR grant applications. This change affects all SBIR/STTR Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) using Standard Due Dates, including these Omnibus FOAs. Applications for Request for Applications (RFAs) and Program Announcements (PAs, PARs, PASs) with special receipt dates continue to be due on the specified dates listed in the FOA.

Additionally effective September 5, 2015, HHS SBIR/STTR grant applications will no longer be accepted on AIDS and AIDS-related Due Dates (May 7, September 7, and January 7), as two of the three new standard due dates are 2 days prior to the current AIDS due dates.  Accordingly, any AIDS or AIDS-related HHS SBIR/STTR grant applications must also follow the new Standard Due Dates.  Please see NOT-OD-15-038.

With this issuance, small business concerns that are majority-owned by multiple venture capital operating companies (VCOCs), hedge funds and/or private equity firms ARE NOW ELIGIBLE to apply to the CDC SBIR program and compete for up to 15% of CDC's SBIR set-aside.  This option is still available to applicants of the NIH SBIR program as well.
