Special NCRR Supp Opportunity to Leverage CTSAs etc.

This special NCRR competitive revision application, which has as second submission date even (April 21 and July 10), may have slipped under the radar in many places, so I’ll call out some pertinent details here. You must download the How To Apply PDF. PIs with active R01s will need to work with their PO and the appropriate NCCR center/center-like entity (CTSA, GCRC, SEPA, BTRC, primate center, etc.) in planning requests.

NCRR will commit $20M to these supplements. The maximum direct cost per award allowed by NCRR is $300K. The budget should be appropriate for the proposed work and my be limited by the parent IC restrictions on the size of competitive revision awards. You should talk with your PO or check your IC Website for details.

You can request funding to support:

• Training Opportunities
• Technology sharing
• Equipment sharing
• Outreach Projects
• Animal model development
• Study design support
• Computational modeling
• Clinical support
• Technology transfer support
• Translational research studies

and then some. Please remember that these requests must be to support new research objectives/experiments outside of the original scope of your parent grant.

When actually applying, you MUST include the phrase “Enabling RPGs to Leverage NCRR Center and Center-like Programs” in two places:

  • Include a Cover Letter and cite the Notice Number (NOT-OD-09-058) and the NCRR Notice title: Enabling RPGs to Leverage NCRR Center and Center-like Programs in the first sentence. If the title of this announcement is not included, NCRR will not consider the application.
  • Explicitly cite the Notice Number (NOT-OD-09-058) and Notice Title: Enabling RPGs to Leverage NCRR Center and Center-like Programs in the first sentence of the Project Summary/Abstract Component of the application. If the title of this announcement is not included, NCRR will not consider the application.
