Part 2. Full Text of Announcement

Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Overview
Current language:
Since an NHLBI OIA is intended to provide the primary, and most likely sole, source of NHLBI funding on individual grant awards, most existing NHLBI grants (e.g., R01s, R03s, etc.) will be incorporated into the OIA award. However, the OIA does not eliminate the eligibility of the PD/PI for the following separate sources of NHLBI funding:

  • Grants supporting research resources (e.g., P30, R24, or U24 awards);
  • Contracts;
  • Selected cooperative agreements;  
  • Grants supporting training, workforce development or diversity building (Note: individual career development grant mechanisms are not permitted except for the NHLBI K24 award [http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/research/training/programs/established/mid-career-k24]);
  • Clinical trials;
  • SBIR/STTR grants;
  • Conference grants;
  • Multiple-PD/PI grants;
  • NHLBI program project or center grants;
  • Administrative Supplements;
  • Applications submitted in response to selected targeted research programs (eligible FOAs to be determined by the NHLBI in consultation with the NHLBAC).

Revised Language:
Since an NHLBI OIA is intended to provide the primary, and most likely sole, source of NHLBI funding on individual grant awards, most existing NHLBI grants (e.g., R01s, R03s, etc.) will be incorporated into the OIA award.

  • Grants supporting research resources (e.g., P30, R24, or U24 awards);
  • Contracts;
  • Selected cooperative agreements;
  • Grants supporting training, workforce development or diversity building (Note: individual career development grant mechanisms are not permitted except for the NHLBI K24 award [http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/research/training/programs/established/mid-career-k24]);

  • NHLBI program project or center grants (including subprojects)

All other aspects of the FOA remain unchanged.
