August 22, 2022
On July 15, 2022, Notice NOT-OD-22-182 was released to announce that eRA’s ASSIST module will retire application form versions prior to FORMS-E, effective Wednesday, August 31, 2022. 

Users who anticipate needing to copy information from applications prepared with a form set prior to FORMS-E should copy their application data to a current application package (FORMS-G) prior to August 31, 2022, to preserve the ability to reuse their application data in the future. Once the older forms are retired, the information within applications prepared with the older forms will no longer be accessible.
