NIH announced the publication of the revised NIH Grants Policy Statement (NIHGPS, rev. April 2021). See:
Per NIH’s announcement, “This revision is applicable to all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods beginning on or after October 1, 2020. This revision supersedes, in its entirety, the NIHGPS dated December 2019. Previous versions of the NIHGPS remain applicable as standard terms and conditions of award for all NIH grants and cooperative agreements with budget periods that began prior to October 1, 2020.”
For more information about these changes, see NIH’s full announcement at https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-21-107.html.
