In order to provide a secure environment in which to submit their applications, organizations must register with both:
- NIH eRA Commons, which allows NIH to receive applications submitted
through Grants.gov. It also provides a way for NIH and registered users to
communicate electronically after submission. and with Grants.gov.
- To become registered in the NIH eRA Commons, please go to: NIH eRA Commons [commons.era.nih.gov]
- For those applicant organizations still needing to register with Grants.gov, please go to: Grants.gov - Get Registered [grants.gov] to obtain registration information.
Applicant organizations and Principal Investigators are encouraged to prepare themselves by completing registration in both Grants.gov and the NIH eRA Commons now. It can take several weeks to fully complete the registration process so applicant organizations are encouraged to start early.
