Applications for R01 grants are transitioning to electronic submission

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is continuing its transition to electronic submission of grant applications. All applications for R01 grants submitted for the February 5, 2007, receipt deadline must be submitted electronically using the SF 424 (R&R) form set. AHRQ encourages applicants to:

  • Be prepared and register early. One time registrations for both ( and eRA Commons systems must be completed before application submission. These are two distinct systems with separate registration requirements.
  • Be informed. For up-to-date general information on electronic submission, the SF 424 (R&R), and, visit the AHRQ Electronic Submission of Grant Applications Pathfinder:

Applicants are encouraged to submit their applications early; 4 weeks prior to the receipt date is recommended, and applicants should work with their central grants office to learn how each institution is handling the changes. This transition will continue through May 2007; a specific announcement will precede each grant funding mechanism transition, giving the date when electronic submission and use of the SF 424 (R&R) will be required.
