The carryover of unspent funds on a T32 or T90 award is subject to the prior approval of NIDA program and grants management staff.
Please submit a written request signed by your authorized organizational official. Include a detailed budget (PHS 2590, Form Page 2 and checklist) with an explanation why there is an unobligated balance and a detailed justification for the use of funds. The request should be transmitted in PDF format to the program official and grants management specialist listed on the NoA. Program and grants management staff will review the request. If they approve, the grants management specialist will issue a revised award authorizing the carryover.
Prior to requesting additional training slots, all allocated slots must be filled. NIDA will not consider requests to increase the annual stipend levels, tuition and fees and training related expenses established by NIH.
The carryover request must be submitted a minimum of 30 days in advance of the planned use of the carryover. For example, if you are interested in requesting an additional training slot on April 1, the request must be submitted no later than March 1.
Prior to submitting the carryover request, please assure that your organization has submitted the most recent Federal Financial Report (FFR). FFRs for NIDA T32s and T90s are due annually, no later than September 30. The FFR must be submitted electronically through the eRA Commons. Failure to submit an FFR on time will delay NIDA's ability to review the carryover request.
