Application Submission Visit the Submitting Your Application page for information about the four separate registration processes you must complete to submit a grant application to SAMHSA. (Ad) Looking for Grants and Donors for your country? Note: SAMHSA requires that applications be submitted electronically through Grants.gov. Successfully submitted applications through Grants.gov will then proceed to the NIH eRA Commons system and validations. Once your submitted application is successfully validated by the NIH eRA Commons system, it will be forwarded to SAMHSA as the receiving institution for further review. SAMHSA will not accept or consider any applications sent by email or fax, or hand-carried without an approved waiver. Please see the “Waiver of Electronic Submission” section on the Submitting Your Application for further details. Review Process Main page content: SAMHSA uses peer reviewers who are subject matter experts and generally not SAMHSA employees. Peer reviewers evaluate discretionary grant applications. Screening Applications: The Division of Grant Review (DGR) will screen out applications that do not meet the administrative or programmatic requirements of the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). These applications will not go forward to review. The DGR will notify the business official identified in the application within 30-60 days of receiving the application if it has been screened out. First Level Review: Peer reviewers evaluate the grant applications through fair, competent, and objective assessments to provide SAMHSA with a sound basis for making funding decisions. A summary statement of the peer review evaluation will be sent to the business official identified in the application. Second Level Review: In addition to the first level of peer review, some grant programs are subject to review by the SAMHSA National Advisory Council (NAC). The NAC is the second level of review required for programs that exceed the current grant threshold of $150,000. The NAC does not review individual applications but votes (usually en bloc) to agree or not with the peer review results. Grant Review Principles: The DGR upholds the following principles to make sure that each application receives a thorough and fair review: The DGR holds peer reviewers to strict conflict-of-interest (COI) standards. The DGR maintains confidentiality for both applicants and peer reviewers. The DGR chooses peer reviewers for their knowledge, skills, and expertise related to the particular grant program under review. The DGR also tries to develop peer review groups based on geographic, gender, and ethnic diversity. Peer reviewers evaluate and score each application according to the FOA and its criteria for evaluation.
