Progress Reports - All NIH grant awards require, at a minimum, an annual progress report, which is submitted using the Non-Competing Continuation Grant Progress Report (PHS Form 2590). If a PHS 2590 will not be submitted because continuation support is not desired, a final progress report must be submitted within 90 days after the expiration or termination of the project (see NIHGPS). For those awards under SNAP, grantees are required to follow the special SNAP instructions in the PHS 2590.
Institutions are strongly encouraged to submit SNAP Progress Reports electronically through the eRA Commons (see Electronic Research Administration below). For non-SNAP grants, paper progress reports (original and one copy) must be submitted to the following centralized mailing address:
