This week, 17 additional DRS grant competitions were forecasted on grants.gov. The total number of forecasted grants is now 163. This is an increase from the 146 grants that were forecasted on Friday, June 28, 2019. It is typical for forecasts to continue to appear on grants.gov right up until the Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) post. We will let you know if more forecasts are added.
The anticipated release of DRS Round 8 FOAs is September 4, 2019, less than 2 months away. In past round of DRS, FOAs have posted before or after the anticipated release date. We recommend you sign up for updates on grants.gov so that you’re alerted when the FOA is live. Check out our recent blog post for guidance on how to sign up for grants.gov updates and for other tips to prepare for DRS.
