National Center for Research Resources (NCRR)

The National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) has revised the 
Eligibility Requirements for the Extramural Research Facilities 
Improvement Program (C06).  See Addendum to PAR-01-130 
https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-01-130.html for revised 
eligibility requirements for this program.  The new requirements is as 


Under Section 481A of the PHS Act, domestic, non-Federal, public and 
private non-profit institutions, organizations, and associations that 
conduct or support biomedical or behavioral research are eligible to 
apply, including, for example, allied health professional schools.  In 
response to this PA, an institution may submit two applications to the 
Research Facilities Improvement Program in the same fiscal year for 
projects that encompass different scopes and are from two different 
"stand alone" components that are uniquely identified subordinate 
organizational elements of the institution (for example, a medical 
school and a dental school within a university).

Applications are encouraged from institutions of emerging excellence, 
which are defined as recipients of a "Center of Excellence" award in 
the fiscal year preceding the fiscal year in which an application is 
submitted in response to this PA.  Centers of Excellence (COE) awards 
are made by the Division of Health Professions Diversity, Bureau of 
Health Professions, Health Resources and Services Administration, DHHS. 
A list of the Centers of Excellence, and further information about this 
program can be found at URL http://bhpr.hrsa.gov/kidscareers/coe.htm.

For this PA, the needs of smaller and developing institutions will be 
given special consideration.
