NIA is encouraging applications to PA-16-287 to expand existing NIA awards that are not currently focused on ADRD to allow them to develop a focus on ADRD. NIA active awards with project end dates in FY 2018 or later are eligible. The award may not be in terminal no-cost extension or going into no-cost extension in FY 2017.

As an administrative supplement, the work proposed needs to be within the scope of the research or training that is already supported. Center awards and resource awards are most likely to be able to justify these supplements as they tend to have a broad content scope. Some research grants will also qualify if the current research is on a related topic. Topics may include, but are not limited to, cognitive decline in aging, caregiving, or research on the biology of neurodegeneration.

Research proposed in supplement applications should have clear relevance to ADRD. The proposed work may include pilot projects, resource development, or secondary analysis of existing data. In each case, the work proposed should be feasible to complete within a one-year timeframe and with the limited funds permitted. It should also show promise of becoming a more substantial project that might attract funding.

Investigators should submit applications as responses to the parent active administrative supplement PA: using electronic submission. Paper submissions will not be accepted for this program.

Individual requests can be no more than $100,000 in direct costs exclusive of Facilities and Administrative costs on sub-contracts and may be for one year only. Though supplement requests are not limited to one per parent grant award, we will give priority to only one supplement per award.

Requests must be received by July 3 for funding in FY 2017.
