NIH GUIDE, Vol. 22, No. 1, January 8, 1993

National Institute of Mental Health

Program Announcement PA-93-003 (Research Infrastructure Support

Program) was published in the October 2 "NIH Guide to Grants and

Contracts."  The purpose of this program is "to stimulate the

development of new resources at institutions capable of developing

and maintaining programs of clinical and services research directed

at the major mental health disorders."  An eligibility requirement

was included that stated that "applications may be submitted by

public and private, non-profit and for-profit organizations such as

universities, colleges, hospitals, laboratories, units of State and

local governments, except for those institutions with NIMH research

support exceeding $3,000,000 (in total costs) in fiscal year 1991."

Potential applicants have asked NIMH staff about this restriction and

its interpretation.

Based upon the above, thirty one institutions are ineligible.

Eligible institutions must apply directly, however, and not in

conjunction with an ineligible one; e.g. subcontracting is NOT

acceptable.  Thus, eligible institutions affiliated with ineligible

institutions may apply, as long as the eligible institution is

awarded the entire grant.  Ineligible applications submitted to DRG

will be immediately administratively withdrawn.
