If you already have or are considering applying for NIH Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) funding, please note the following:
The registration process has changed.
By April 2022, the Dun & Bradstreet Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number will be replaced with a 12-character Unique Entity Identifier (UEI) created in SAM.gov.
|What this means for NEW NIH SBIR & STTR applicants:
Don’t forget new applicants must complete multiple registrations before preparing an application and applying for funding.
No additional action is required for CURRENT NIH SBIR & STTR awardees. Your UEI was automatically generated and can be found:
- in the Institutional Profile File (IPF).
- populated on Page One of the Notice of Award.
- in both SAM.gov and Grants.gov.
New application forms are in use.
Forms-G are in use for NIH funding opportunities with due dates on or after January 25, 2022, including the upcoming April 5th receipt date. Review the new application instructions and view this annotated form set.
Key changes in these new forms include updated instructions around Technical and Business Assistance (TABA) requests, commercialization plan, and reporting on prior Phase II awards.
Remember to register and apply long before the due dates. It can take 6 weeks or more to complete the registration process and you may want time to contact a program official with any questions.
