eRA Information: eRA Commons, ASSIST, and IAR Are Now Accessible

eRA Commons, ASSIST and IAR are available for you to access.

As a result of the 16 day government shutdown, there are a few items that you need to keep in mind:

  • Error free applications submitted on or the two days prior to the shutdown will be held for viewing in the Commons on Tuesday and Wednesday Oct 22 and 23 to ensure applicants have 2 full days to check their application image before it moves on to NIH’s Center of Scientific Review (CSR) for processing.
  • Because of large number of queued messages as a result of the shutdown and the number of waiting applications from, timing of email notifications may be off. Do not rely on email notifications concerning your application. Please proactively check the Commons late on Monday or on Tuesday for the status of any application submission.
