New for 2014 – CDMRP’s New Application Receipt System (eBRAP). For FY14, CDMRP has instituted its electronic Biomedical Research Application Portal (eBRAP). Application submission is a two-step process requiring (1) pre-application submission through the eBRAP (https://eBRAP.org/) and (2) application submission through Grants.gov (http://www.grants.gov/), with application status available on eBRAP. A key feature of eBRAP is that organizational representatives and Principal Investigators (PIs) will be able to view and modify their Grants.gov application submissions.
Submission of either the pre-application to eBRAP or the application to Grants.gov does not require registering an organization and affiliating its Business Officials and PIs in eBRAP. However, you will only be able to view and modify your full application submission in the eBRAP system if you are accepted in eBRAP by the organization that is listed in blocks 5 & 19 of the S424 form in the Grants.gov application package. You will receive an email from the eBRAP system once this organization has accepted you.
