Sep 28, 2018, 15:00 PM by Melodi Moore

The purpose of this funding opportunity is for investigators and institutions impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria and with active NIH grants to request: 1) a 24-month extension of the current budget period, with 12-months of funding at the same funding level as the current year of the grant; and/or, 2a) one-time administrative supplements of up to $50,000 in direct costs (excluding consortium F&A costs) to replace lost and/or damaged research resources; and/or 2b) up to $100,000 to replace a single item of equipment so long as that request is accompanied by well-documented support for the need to replace that item of equipment.  Applicable F&A costs should also be requested; and/or 2c) minor alternation and renovation (A&R) to research facilities up to $150,000. Note: Applicants for projects with minor A&R costs of $150,000 up to $500,000 should apply to the forthcoming R24 FOA.

Benefits of this opportunity are restricted to the counties that FEMA declared a major disaster area in the following states and territories:  Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, South Carolina, Texas, US Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.

Grants at NIH-supported institutions impacted by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria will be eligible for both the funded extension and/or administrative supplements. If a grant has relocated or relocates prior to the award of the funded extension, the funded extension may be withdrawn.
