New Electronic Grant Application Process

AHRQ is transitioning to a new electronic grant application process that will replace the current PHS 398 grant application form with the Standard Form (SF) 424 Research and Related (R&R) Grant Application. The conversion to the new form and electronic submission process will be phased in over the next two years. The first funding mechanism to make the transition will be AHRQ's small conference grants (R13), starting with the December 20, 2005, submission date.

To help guide applicants through this transition, AHRQ has created an information pathway page on the Agency's Web site at
