​The Application Submission System & Interface for Submission Tracking (ASSIST) is a tool developed by the NIH to allow institutions to electronically prepare, submit, and track grant applications through Grants.Gov to NIH. The system was originally created for multi-project submissions (PPGs), however, the success of the system has led NIH to expand its use to single-project submissions as well.

ASSIST allows for pre-population of data from investigators' eRA Commons profiles, collaboration with multiple investigators, secure login via eRA Commons accounts, and validation of business rules before submission.

Please see the Review Priorities documents which outline both the department's and HS SPPO's responsibilities in reviewing ASSIST applications.
