NIH Meritorious research grants will be the main recipients of the research funds. During FY08, there were about 14,000 RO1 research Project grant applications that could not be funded. These will be reviewed for possibilities of two-year awards. There is a possibility that some new proposal will be considered, but it is likely that the bulk of RO1s funded from ARRA money will go to proposals that have alreay been reviewed. Some current grants will recieve supplemental funds, including some supplements that may be made according to themes, such as equipment and training. The supplements will be awarded following existing procedures for supplemental grants. The NIH will issue a new request for applications (likekly in the next week or two) to make grants for meritorious, innovative work which will advance science in a meaningful way and can be accomplished in two years. The Challenge grants will seek to serve priorities of the ICs and cross-cutting research. Funding for each grant is estimated at $500,000 per year for two years.

NIH has released two new announcements related to Recovery Act funding:


Please Click here to View Memo from Provost Bobbitt and Dr. Elsenbaumer


[ Back to Top ]

Department of Energy’s:

The Office of Electricity Delivery and Energy Reliability (OE) issued a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for developing, populating, managing, and maintaining a Web-based Smart Grid Information Clearinghouse.  Smart Grid is the term used for an electricity delivery system that is integrated with modern digital and information technology to provide improved reliability, security, efficiency and ultimately lower cost to the user.


National Science Foundation:

The Recovery Act supplements NSF fiscal year 2009 funding by $3.0 billion. NSF currently has many highly rated proposals that it has not been able to fund. For this reason, NSF is planning to use the majority of the $2 billion available in Research and Related Activities for proposals that are already in house and will be reviewed and/or awarded prior to September 30, 2009.
The Foundation also expects to expeditiously award funds as specified in the Recovery Act for: the Math and Science Partnership program (funded at $25 million); the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program (funded at $60 million); the Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction Account (funded at $400 million); the Academic Research Infrastructure (ARI) program (funded at $200 million); and the Science Masters program, (funded at $15 million). Solicitations for these latter two programs will be posted this spring.
NSF will post a solicitation this spring for the Major Research Instrumentation Program (MRI) in order to make a sufficient number of awards to utilize the $300 million provided in the legislation. The Foundation currently anticipates that no other solicitations will be posted that are solely in response to the Recovery Act.


Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):

Applications are now available to support clean diesel activities through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act). This Recovery Act funding for clean diesel activities will be offered this year in addition to EPA FY 2009 National Diesel Emissions Reduction Program appropriations. A separate competitive announcement for the FY 2009 National Diesel Emissions Reduction Program Appropriation funds will be issued later in 2009.
