Nih logo 2101026093The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Applicant Assistance Program (AAP) is designed to assist small businesses who have never received NIH SBIR/STTR funding in preparing and submitting a Small Business Innovation Research or Small Business Technology Transfer (SBIR/STTR) application.

The goal of this program is to increase participation in the SBIR program by socially/economically disadvantaged small businesses, women-owned small businesses, and small businesses located in under-represented states.

The AAP application portal will be opening on August 5th, 2022 and information about the program is available at the NIH Application Assistance Program website. For more information about the AAP, be sure to attend the AAP Informational Webinar on August 5th at 3:00 PM ET and the Q&A Office Hours on September 15th at 2:00 PM ET. All applications must be submitted no later than September 22nd, 2022 at 5:00 PM ET.

Please note that this service is NOT available to support preparation of a Fast-Track or Phase II application. Companies who have a current SBIR/STTR application under review with the same scope of work are not eligible for AAP support.
