The Social Work Research Development Centers program announcement

(PA-92-078), published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts,

Vol. 21, No. 17, May 8, 1992, provides flexible support to meet

unique institutional needs for developing strong mental health

research in graduate schools of social work.  The purpose of this

amendment is to revise and clarify the submission, review, and

administration of SWRDC applications.  The SWRDC Research

Infrastructure Plan and the Research Enhancement Projects will be

submitted, administered, reviewed, and funded as individual separate


The following should be inserted into the section on "Budget", which

begins on page 9 of the full text program announcement:

Applications for the SWRDC Research Infrastructure Improvement Plan

and each Research Enhancement Plan must be submitted, reviewed,

funded, and administered separately.  The maximum grant for the SWRDC

Infrastructure Improvement Plan is $300,000 per year, plus indirect

costs.  Research Enhancement Projects will be treated as independent

research projects, which will be funded at levels appropriate to

their scope and separately from the infrastructure plan.

Under APPLICATION PROCEDURES, the first sentence of paragraph 2 on

page 10 is revised to read:

Separate applications must be submitted for each of the individual

projects:  (1) the "Infrastructure Improvement Plan" and (2) for each

"Research Enhancement Proposal".

Under "Review Criteria", the last sentence of paragraph 1 on page 12

is revised to read:

A priority score reflecting the technical and scientific merit of

each separate application will be assigned by the reviewers.
