NOTICE:  NOT-AG-03-003   (this notice is in reference to RFA AG-04-001)

National Institute on Aging (NIA)

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) wishes to correct an error in the RFA 
entitled "Centers on the Demography of Aging (P30)" which was originally 
published in the NIH Guide to Grants and Contracts at  

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) wishes to inform applicants to the 
Centers on the Demography of Aging RFA that the section entitled "SUBMITTING 
AN APPLICATION /SUPPLEMENTAL INSTRUCTIONS" incorrectly instructed applicants 
to give examples of only two projects in the Program Development (Pilot) 

Instructions under "RESEARCH OBJECTIVES" in the section entitled "Description 
of a Center" under "Program Development Core (MANDATORY)" are correct.  This 
section instructs applicants to "describe the proposed use of program 
development funds for two, and only two, pilot projects in each of the first 
two years of the proposed center."  The applicant, therefore, is instructed 
to describe a total of four pilot projects, two in the first year and two in 
the second year.


Any further inquiries regarding this initiative or questions on application 
procedures should be addressed to:
