Receipt Date for Center (P30) Applications
This Notice is to remind potential applicants that the receipt date for 
applications for the NIEHS Core Center Grants Program is February 1 each year.  
NIEHS Core Center Grants provide support for an administrative structure, 
scientific leadership, and shared equipment to multidisciplinary groups of 
productive scientists with programs in environmental health.  Direct research 
support is NOT provided by the grant, except for limited funds for pilot 
The NIEHS currently supports twenty-two Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) and 
four Marine and Freshwater Biomedical Sciences (MFBS) Centers.  Because of 
limitations on the number of Centers that can be supported and the special

staff to discuss the scope, content, size, and timing of any applications for 
this program.  Applications received for the February 1, 2003 receipt date will

in Fiscal Year 2004.  Please note that the minimum required research grant base 
in environmental health sciences for an EHS Center has increased from $3.0M to
