Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking (ASSIST)
NIH has developed a new system which has the ability to accept multi-project (also known as multi-component or complex) applications electronically through Grants.gov using the SF424 R&R form set. The Grants.gov downloadable forms currently used for most NIH opportunities cannot support NIH's multi-project requirements. Consequently, NIH has developed a web-based interface called ASSIST (Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking) for the preparation and submission of multi-project applications.
Please see "related information" to learn more about the new system and as always contact your Sponsored Programs Specialist with any questions.
