Information and Instructions

See below for the HTML Table of Contents and information on Notable Changes to form pages. Also see the Noncompeting Continuation (Type 5) Progress Report Mailing Addresses.

Rich Text Format (RTF) is a standardized way to encode various text formatting properties, such as bold characters and typefaces, as well as document formatting and structures. RTF is supported across a number of platforms. RTF files can be opened in many word processors and other RTF-aware software packages with much of its formatting left intact.  In addition, many word processing programs will also allow users to save a document in RTF when you select "Save As...".

Some fields on the RTF Form Pages have been "protected" to minimize the chances that applicants will attempt to alter the forms.  Format Pages, however, have been left "unprotected" to allow applicants to format text and/or insert graphics, diagrams, or tables. Please note: These format pages are intended to assist applicants in the development of specific sections of the application.

NOTE: Applicants who encounter problems with the forms or print margins due to printer settings are advised to use the individual files for Forms/Format Pages below. Alternatively, applicants may select "Unprotect Document" under "Tools" to make necessary modifications. (Note: Page numbers can be added by unprotecting the document and double-clicking in the "footer".) Applicants are advised that TYPE SIZE AND FORMAT SPECIFICATIONS MUST BE FOLLOWED OR THE APPLICATION WILL BE DESIGNATED AS INCOMPLETE AND WILL BE RETURNED TO THE APPLICANT ORGANIZATION WITHOUT PEER REVIEW.

See FAQs: Revised PHS 398 and PHS 2590 Forms and Instructions (PDF or RTF) for detailed information on using the new fillable PDF forms and other important information.
