The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD)

has an active interest in the support of research on the development

of children who have been placed in child care arrangements during

their infancy.  In 1988, NICHD issued a request for cooperative

agreement applications (RFA) titled "Effects of non-parental infant

day care on child development."  The data collection for the study

that ensued will terminate at the end of 1994 and NICHD intends to

extend this cooperative agreement for an additional five years for

the purpose of longer follow-up studies of the same cohort of

children.  It also intends to limit the competition to the

participating research sites and to expert investigators who have

access to the study participants and to data derived therefrom.  The

study will continue to be conducted as a collaboration between

awardees and NICHD scientific program staff.  The NICHD staff will

have substantial programmatic involvement in designing and

coordinating the research protocol, monitoring its progress, making

data analyses plans and writing scientific papers.  The NICHD

scientific program staff member will also continue to be responsible

for the overall coordination of the project.INQUIRIES
