Uses and Use Restrictions
Grants and cooperative agreements may be made to eligible institutions for the support of cancer research projects.
The grants and cooperative agreements may be used for personnel, consultant costs, equipment, supplies, travel, patient costs, animals, alterations and renovations, miscellaneous items, and indirect costs.
Restrictions are imposed against the use of funds for entertainment, foreign travel (unless specifically authorized), office equipment, and other items not normally necessary for the effective prosecution of such research.
SBIR Phase I grants (of approximately 6-months' duration) are to establish the technical merit, feasibility and commercial potential of a proposed research effort and to determine the quality of performance of the awardee.
Phase II grants are for the continuation of the research initiated in Phase I, and are likely to result in commercial products or processes.
Only SBIR Phase I awardees are eligible to receive Phase II support.
STTR Phase I grants (normally of 1-year duration) are to determine the scientific, technical, and commercial merit and feasibility of the proposed cooperative effort that has potential for commercial application.
Phase II funding is based on results of research initiated in Phase I, and the scientific and technical merit and commercial potential of the proposed Phase II project.
Only STTR Phase I awardees are eligible to receive Phase II support.
The NIH Fast-Track mechanism provides additional assistance to applicants by expediting the decision and award of funding for scientifically meritorious applications for projects that have a high potential for commercialization.
The mechanism allows small businesses to submit applications for both Phase I and Phase II together for review as one application, with the aim of reducing or eliminating the funding gap between Phase I and Phase II.
The awardee will be a university, college, hospital, public agency, nonprofit research institution or for-profit organization that submits an application and receives a grant or cooperative agreement for support of research by a named principal investigator.
SBIR grants can be awarded only to domestic small businesses (entities that are independently owned and operated for profit, are not dominant in the field in which research is proposed, and have no more than 500 employees).
Primary employment (more than one- half time) of the principal investigator must be with the small business at the time of award and for the duration of the project period.
In both Phase I and Phase II, the research must be performed in the U.S.
and its possessions.
To be eligible for funding, a grant application must be approved for scientific merit, technical merit, and program relevance by a scientific review group and a national advisory council.
STTR grants can be awarded only to domestic small business concern (entities that are independently owned and operated for profit, are not dominant in the field in which research is proposed and have no more than 500 employees) which 'partner' with a research institution in cooperative research and development.
At least 40 percent of the project is to be performed by the small business concern and at least 30 percent by the research institution.
The Principal Investigator may be primarily employed by either the small business concern or the collaborating research institution at the time of award and for the duration of the project period.
In both Phase I and Phase II, the research must be performed in the U.S.
and its possessions.
To be eligible for funding, a grant application must be approved for scientific merit, technical merit and program relevance by a scientific review group and a national advisory council.
University, college, hospital, public agency, nonprofit research institutions or for-profit organizations will benefit.
For-profit organizations' costs are determined in accordance with 48 CFR, Subpart 31.2 of the Federal Acquisition Regulations. For other grantees, costs will be determined in accordance with HHS Regulations 45 CFR, Part 75. For SBIR and STTR grants, the applicant organization (small business concern) must present in a research plan an idea that has potential for commercialization and furnish evidence that scientific competence, experimental methods, facilities, equipment, and funds requested are appropriate to carry out the plan. Grant form SF424(R&R) (version as specified in the FOA) is used to apply for SBIR Phase I and Phase II, and STTR Phase I and Phase II. 2 CFR 200, Subpart E - Cost Principles applies to this program.
Aplication and Award Process
Preapplication coordination is not applicable.
Environmental impact information is not required for this program.
This program is excluded from coverage under E.O.
2 CFR 200, Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards applies to this program. Depending on the grant mechanism, either form PHS-398 (Rev. March 2016) or form SF424(R&R) (Version as specified in the FOA) is the standard application form. Both forms can be obtained online at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/forms.htm. The standard application forms, as furnished by DHHS. SBIR and STTR Grant Solicitations and SBIR Contract Solicitations may be obtained electronically through the NIH Small Business Funding Opportunities home page at https://sbir.nih.gov/funding. The Solicitations include submission procedures, review considerations, and grant application or contract proposal forms. All competing SBIR and STTR grant applications should be submitted electronically to the NIH via Grants.gov (http://www.grants.gov/).
Grants and cooperative agreements are funded based on scientific merit, program relevance, and program balance and are made annually. Initial award provides funds for first budget period (usually 12 months) and Notice of Grant Award (Form PHS 1533) indicates support recommended for remainder of project period, allocation of Federal funds by budget categories, and special conditions, if any. All accepted SBIR/STTR applications are evaluated for scientific and technical merit by an appropriate scientific peer review panel and by a national advisory council or board. All applications receiving a priority score compete for available SBIR/STTR set-aside funds on the basis of scientific and technical merit and commercial potential of the proposed research, program relevance, and program balance among the areas of research.
Contact the headquarters or regional office, as appropriate, for application deadlines.
