Receipt Date for Center (P30) Applications

This Notice is to remind potential applicants that the receipt date for 
applications for the NIEHS Core Center Grants Program is February 1 of 
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 projects.

The NIEHS currently supports 22 Environmental Health Sciences (EHS) and 
four Marine and Freshwater Biomedical (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, 2004 receipt date will compete with six extant EHS Centers 
for funding early in Fiscal Year 2005.  Please note that the minimum 
required research grant base in environmental health sciences for an 
EHS Center is $5.0M.


Guidelines for this program, including eligibility requirements, fiscal 
limitations, review criteria, and additional information are available 
on the NIEHS website, http://www.niehs.nih.gov/centers, or from:
