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 eighteen Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) and
five Marine and Freshwater Biomedical Sciences (MFBS) Centers.  Because of
limitations on the number of centers that can be supported and the special nature
of the program, potential applicants are strongly urged to contact NIEHS staff
to discuss the scope, content, size, and timing of any applications for this
program.  Applications received for the February 1, 1998 receipt date will
compete with five extant EHS Core Centers, and two extant Marine and Freshwater
Biomedical Sciences Core Centers, for funding early in Fiscal Year 1999. 
Applications having a research program focused on environmentally related health
problems of underserved and/or economically disadvantaged populations are
particularly encouraged.


Guidelines for this program, including fiscal limitations, review criteria, and
additional information are available from:
