The purpose of this notice is to notify the extramural community that NIH is transitioning to updated terminology regarding funding opportunities to better align with the Uniform Administrative Requirements as outlined in 2 CFR Part 200.
Effective immediately, NIH will use the term notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) to refer to formal announcements of the availability of Federal funding through a financial assistance program. Previously, such announcements were referred to as funding opportunity announcements (FOAs). See the NIH Grants & Funding Glossary for the full definition.
NIH is currently updating websites, documents, and other resources to reflect the new terminology.
