The NCRR wishes to inform potential applicants to the Developing And 
Improving Institutional Animal Resources program announcement 
(http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-00-124.html) that the 
matching requirement for all applicants has been eliminated.  The total 
budget request for the improvement grant application and award is limited to 
$700,000 (direct costs).  The $700,000 request may be used (a) entirely for 
movable equipment (e.g., cages, static racks); (b) for renovation, repair or 
modernizing the facility and for fixed equipment; and (c) in any combination 
of option (a) and (b) to reach the $700,000 maximum request limit of the 
award.  Facilities and administrative costs are not allowed.  This is a 
change from past announcements.  
 
A revised program announcement for the Developing And Improving Institutional 
Animal Resources will be published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts.
