Section I. Funding Opportunity Description

Purpose

The NIH announces an opportunity to request an administrative supplement to NIH-funded research and training that would support research into the health impacts of household air pollution (HAP) from the incomplete combustion of biomass or solid fuels used for cooking, heating or lighting.  The purpose of this administrative supplement  is to provide opportunities for teams with current programs in lower and middle income countries (LMIC) to conduct research or research training on the relationship between exposure to HAP and the risk for adverse health effects to women and children including but not limited to risks for asthma, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, infections, ocular diseases, burns and scalds, pregnancy outcomes, acute lower respiratory tract infection (ALRI) or impaired growth and development in infants and children, and social and behavioral aspects of stove adoption and reduction in HAP exposures.

Research Opportunity

The goal of this program is to provide administrative supplements to currently funded NIH investigators interested in understanding and preventing the adverse health outcomes of HAP to women and children. This research opportunity is timely as a result of the recent formation of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, a public-private partnership within the United Nations Foundation that is promoting the global distribution of more advanced cookstoves to improve health (http://cleancookstoves.org).

This program augments the NIH commitment to the Global Alliance and to its mission to use advanced stoves and fuels to reduce HAP and to improve human health, by providing administrative supplements to existing NIH grants relevant to this topic.  Eligible parent grants should include studies in LMIC where HAP exists in urban or rural settings but the original research or research training focus can be diverse. Examples of such parent grants may include studies of adverse pregnancy outcomes, women’s or children’s health, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, ALRI and other respiratory diseases, ocular disorders or household-related burns or scalds; health impacts of outdoor air pollution or environmental tobacco smoke; birth cohorts studying prevalence of disease or interventions; social and behavioral studies of health-related household activities such as water or sanitation practices; application of evaluation methods that can assess health impacts in large non-randomized cookstove implementation programs; field application of novel technology such as personal exposure monitors or biomarkers relevant to the purpose of the supplement; studies of children at risk for disease in early life (asthma, child development including impaired learning or cognition, malaria, tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS etc) as well as other diseases or conditions related to pregnancy or early life risks.

Examples of research skills, experience and priorities that would be responsive to this announcement include but are not limited to:

The research or research training proposed by the NIH grantee in the supplement application must be within the original scope of the NIH-supported grant project.  The funding mechanism being used to support this program, administrative supplements, can be used to cover cost increases that are associated with achieving certain new research objectives as long as they are within the original scope of the project.  Any cost increases need to result from making modifications to the project in order to take advantage of opportunities that would increase the value of the project consistent with its originally approved objectives and purposes.    

Section II. Award Information
Funding Instrument

The funding instrument will be the same as the parent award. 

Grant or Cooperative Agreement

Application Types Allowed

Non-competing Administrative Supplements

Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards

The number of awards is contingent upon NIH appropriations, and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.

Award Budget

NIH participating ICs intend to commit up to $1.2M in FY2012 to fund up to 8 to 10 awards.  Requested amounts must reflect actual needs of the proposed project.

An applicant must request a project period of 1 year only. The budget requests may be for $50,000 to $200,000 total costs (i.e., DC +_F&A).

The budget can include salary support in addition to other justified expenses, such as travel and supplies, for the proposed research or research training recognizing that the research site is likely in a developing country.  The requested salary and fringe benefits must be in accordance with the salary structure of the grantee institution for individuals in comparable positions, consistent with the level of effort. 

Applicants are strongly encouraged to include travel support for an investigator from their research team to attend the NIH Training Course on Health Impacts of Household Air Pollution scheduled for October 10-12, 2012 on the NIH campus.

An award issued under this FOA is contingent upon adequate progress on the parent grant during the current project period, the availability of funds, and the receipt of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.

Although the financial plans of the NIH provide support for this program, administrative supplement awards pursuant to this initiative are contingent upon the availability of funds and the receipt of a sufficient number of meritorious requests.

The funding mechanism being used to support this program, administrative supplements, can be used to cover cost increases that are associated with achieving certain new research objectives, as long as the research objectives are within the original scope of the project, or the cost increases are for unanticipated expenses within the original scope of the project. Any cost increases need to result from making modifications to the project that would increase or preserve the overall impact of the project consistent with its originally approved objectives and purposes.

Award Project Period

The project and budget periods must be within the currently approved project period for the existing parent award.

NIH grants policies as described in the NIH Grants Policy Statement will apply to the applications submitted and awards made in response to this FOA.
