The Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking (ASSIST) system is used to prepare and submit applications electronically to NIH and other Public Health Service agencies. Prior to using ASSIST, applicants should identify a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to which they would like to apply. FOAs are posted in the NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts and/or in Grants.gov each of which has robust search capabilities. The FOA text will indicate whether ASSIST can be used to apply to that opportunity.
Active Grants.gov and eRA Commons credentials are required to prepare and submit applications using ASSIST.
