RELEASE DATE:  August 5, 2004

NOTICE:  NOT-HS-04-007 (Limitations on available grant funds, see NOT-HS-05-005)

Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)

This announcement informs the research community that effective with grant 
application receipt dates beginning October 1, 2004, AHRQ is implementing a 
budget limit of $300,000 total (direct and indirect) costs per year for large 
(R01, R18) grant applications.  For large conference grant applications (R13) 
AHRQ is implementing a total cost budget limit of $100,000 per year.  The 
existing budget limits of $100,000 total costs for small research (R03) grant 
applications and $50,000 direct costs for small conference (R13) grant 
applications remain unchanged.  

AHRQ is implementing this policy due to limitations on available grant funds.  
This budget limit is being implemented for all competing large research and 
conference grant applications submitted to AHRQ, including new, amended, and 
competing continuation applications, unless otherwise indicated in a specific 
grant announcement.  AHRQ is discontinuing its policy concerning unsolicited 
applications that request more than $500,000 in direct costs in any year (see 
http://www.ahrq.gov/fund/advance.htm).  AHRQ will no longer accept 
applications that request more than $300,000 in total costs in any year of 
the proposed grant project.  

This new grant budget limit for large research and conference grant 
applications will be in effect until further notice from AHRQ.  Inquiries 
regarding this notice should be directed to: Debbie Rothstein, Ph.D., Senior 
Advisor for Extramural Research, 301-427-1525, drothste@ahrq.gov
