eBRAP is a multifunctional web-based system that allows PIs to submit their pre-applications electronically through a secure connection, to view and edit the content of their pre-applications and full applications, to receive communications from the CDMRP, and to submit documentation during award negotiations and period of performance.  A key feature of eBRAP is the ability of an organization’s representatives and PIs to view and modify the application submissions associated with them.  eBRAP will validate application files against the specific Program Announcement/Funding Opportunity requirements and discrepancies will be noted in an email to the PI and in the Full Application Files tab in eBRAP.  It is the applicant’s responsibility to review all application components for accuracy as well as ensure proper ordering as specified in this Program Announcement/Funding Opportunity.  

If you wish to apply please contact Angela Vuk as soon as possible so we can support you through the eBRAP system and application process.
