Of interest to a select audience … one application per parent grant but no limit on the number of applications from a given institution. The big “have” institutions will have lots of these big core center awards and will no doubt get in line for an extra $1.2M+ for each of these facilities, complements of ARRA.
Today’s notice of Administrative Supplements to Support Core Consolidation provides up to $500,000 in equipment, up to $500,000 for alteration and renovation, and/or up to $200,000 (DC) for other costs such as personnel and supplies. The NIH plans to spend ~$15 million of ARRA funds by September 30, 2010 to support requests submitted in response to this notice. Participating ICs include NCRR (G12 plus all P and U awards), NCI (only Cancer Center Support P30s are eligible), NIAID (only CFAR P30s are eligible), NIAMS (only P30s are eligible), NIDDK (only P30s & P60s are eligible), NIEHS (only P30s are eligible), and NIDA (“particularly interested in consolidation that results in synergistic enhancement of existing research capabilities, while continuing current services”).
The Notice provides full application details. Applications are due January 13, 2010.
