All applications that include appendix materials receive a warning to remind applicants of our latest appendix policy. The warning is not an indicator as to whether or not the included appendix material is acceptable. It is simply informational.
Unless specified in the funding opportunity announcement (FOA), appendix material is no longer accepted for most grant applications submitted to NIH, AHRQ and NIOSH (NOT-OD-16-129). Applicants should consult the FOA and the aforementioned notice to ascertain if the inclusion of appendix material is permitted. Applications may be withdrawn and not reviewed if they contain appendix materials that are not specifically referenced in the notice or FOA. (000.37)
