How to apply...
Application Form PHS-398 (Rev. May 1995) for Research Grants should be submitted. The standard application forms, as furnished by PHS and required by 45 CFR, Part 74, (for institutions of higher education, hospitals, and other non-profit organizations), and 45 CFR, Part 92, (for State and local governments), must be used for this program. Applications are reviewed and evaluated by a group composed primarily of nonfederal scientists. The review is conducted by a panel of experts in the specific study area proposed. This program is subject to the provisions of 45 CFR, Part 74, 45 CFR, Part 92, and OMB Circular No. A-102 (administrative guidelines and standards for states and local governments), and OMB Circular No. A-110 (administrative guidelines and standards for institutions of higher education, hospitals, and other non-profit organizations).
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
After considering the recommendation of the review group, the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Population Affairs makes the final decision on the funding of approved applications. All applicants are notified in writing of actions taken on their applications. A Notice of Grant Award is issued for those applications that are approved and funded.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
