Where can I find NIH forms?

What else should I consider regarding direct or indirect costs?

  • Some institutes limit the increase in direct costs that can be requested in a renewal application. Please review institute guidelines before preparing budgets.
    • Competing applications with Direct Costs of $250,000 or less must be submitted according to the NIH Modular Grant Application Guidelines.  
    • Applications with Direct Costs exceeding $500,000 in any year require approval from an NIH Institute or Center BEFORE submission. Indirect Costs associated with subcontracts are not included in the $500,000 limit. This approval must be sought at least six (6) weeks prior to the submission date. See NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-02-004 and NOT-OD-17-005.html for details. (Indirect Costs, or Facilities & Administrative/F&A Costs, associated with subcontracts do not count against the $500,000 limit.)
