NIH calls a Grant Transfer a Change of Recipient Organization. Most are submitted electronically via the ASSIST module in eRA Commons, but a few are still submitted via paper. Please refer to the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to determine which option is the correct option for you and your PI.
To locate how you may submit your application, it is under the Activity Code, which is just below the Funding Opportunity Title, near the top of the FOA.
Please see the Review Priorities document which outlines both the department's and HS SPPO's responsibilities in reviewing Grant Transfer (Change of Grantee Institution) applications.

The Grants Policy Statement (GPS) has instructions on what the minimal requirements are to transfer a grant to a new institution. This can be found here
. This should be used in conjunction with both the current Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) and the current SF424 (R&R) Guidelines. The current FOA is PA-21-268
and the current SF424 (R&R) Guidelines
are for applications utilizing version Forms G. Note, that the FOA always trumps the SF424 (R&R) Guidelines when it comes to two conflicting requirements. Moreover, if a Notice is published, the Notice then trumps the other three. If all also fails and you are still confused, then please do not hesitate to contact your HS SPPO Analyst for assistance.
The image below is for most instances. A grant transfer also has information in the GPS, so the GPS and the Application Guide (SF424 R&R Guidelines) would be considered the default instructions.
