The AHA's Grants@Heart site is a web-based system for application preparation, submission, peer review, and awards management. The system is available 24/7. An application for funding can be completed and submitted to the AHA online. Peer reviewers logon and complete all their tasks for peer review, and the system even allows for virtual meetings. Once an award is granted, the principal investigator and fiscal officer can manage the award online.
