New Application Forms: SF-424 Research and Related

The SF-424 Research and Related (R&R) is the new government-wide form adopted by all Federal research and related (e.g., education and extension) grant-making agencies. The SF-424 R&R replaces numerous agency forms and provides common application requirements across the federal government.

The SF-424 R&R was developed into an application forms package by Grants.gov for electronic submission. Applicants applying to NIFA programs electronically will use these new SF-424 R&R forms and the related NIFA-specific forms. These forms are available through the funding opportunity of interest at Grants.gov and must be submitted electronically via Grants.gov.

For those few programs where paper application submissions will be accepted (see FY 2007 Grant Application Changes), NIFA will require applicants to submit printed versions of completed SF-424 Research and Related forms and NIFA-specific data forms for the program of interest. The forms package can be downloaded through the funding opportunity of interest at Grants.gov and printed once completed. The printed application must be signed by the Authorized Representative and mailed to NIFA according to the guidance in the relevant Request for Applications.
