Under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), the NHGRI will provide the opportunity for investigators and United States institutions/organizations with active NIH-supported research project grants (including SBIR and STTR) to submit revision applications (formerly termed competitive supplements) to support a significant expansion of the scope or research protocol of approved and funded projects. Support for these revisions will come from funds provided to NIH through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 ("Recovery Act" or "ARRA"), Public Law 111-5, and the revisions will be awarded for the purpose of achieving the goals of the ARRA to promote job creation and economic development, and to accelerate the pace and achievement of scientific research. For information, please see NOT-OD-09-058: NIH Announces the Availability of Recovery Act Funds for Competitive Revision Applications.
NHGRI will accept revision applications (formerly termed competitive supplements) to support a significant expansion of the scope or research protocol of approved and funded projects in all areas related to the Institute's mission of supporting research in a broad range of studies aimed at understanding the structure and function of the human genome and its role in health and disease, supporting the development of resources and technology that will accelerate genome research and its application to human health, and supporting study of the ethical, legal and social implications (ELSI) of genome research.
Compliance with the ARRA will be greatly facilitated and easily documented if requests are made using standardized request formats. Applicants should follow the instructions given in NOT-OD-09-058.
In addition to the standard NIH terms of award, all funding provided under the ARRA will be subject to the HHS Standard Terms and Conditions for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). ARRA-related reporting requirements will be incorporated as a special term of award.
It is very important that applicants understand that projects awarded under the ARRA are subject to additional reporting requirements. Investigators are strongly encouraged to review these standard requirements, which are detailed at: Standard Terms and Conditions for ARRA Awards
For scientific inquiries, awardees should contact the Program Director listed on the most recent Notice of Award for the parent grant. For fiscal inquiries, awardees should contact the Grants Management Specialist listed on the most recent Notice of Award. Before telephoning the NHGRI, awardees are strongly encouraged to send an e-mail to the appropriate staff member describing the nature of the inquiry; a telephone call can then be subsequently arranged if necessary.
