Alert: The UAT environment for ASSIST will be unavailable on November 6th between 8pm and 12am due to routine maintenance. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Effective October 1, 2020 SAMHSA will no longer include the HHS Checklist in the grant application kit. This applies to all SAMHSA applications: responses to Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs), post-award amendments, continuations, and supplement applications. See Removal of HHS Checklist from the SAMHSA Grant Application Kit for more information.

Submit applications electronically to NIH and other Public Health Service Agencies...

The Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking (ASSIST) system is used to prepare and submit applications electronically to NIH and other Public Health Service agencies. Prior to using ASSIST, applicants should identify a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to which they'd like to apply. FOAs are posted in the NIH Guide for Grants & Contracts and/or in Grants.gov each of which has robust search capabilities. The FOA text will indicate whether ASSIST can be used to apply to that opportunity. You will need the FOA number (e.g., PA-XX-XXX or LITC-ABCD-XX-000) to initiate an application.

Active Grants.gov and eRA Commons credentials are required to prepare and submit applications using ASSIST.
