This FOA issued by the Division of Program Coordination, Planning and Strategic Initiatives, Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP), Office of the Director, National Institutes of Health, solicits applications from biomedical research institutions that propose to renovate, repair, or improve individual animal resources. The major objective of this program is to upgrade animal facilities to support the conduct of biomedical and/or behavioral research. Support can be requested to alter and renovate (A&R) the animal facilities, as well as to improve the animal care equipment in the facility. It is expected that all award funds will be expended expeditiously and that applicants will consider the use of sustainable design technologies and design approaches.
Applicant organizations may not submit more than one application. Only biomedical research institutions that have one or more active biomedical or behavioral research award(s) may apply.
NIH intends to fund an estimate of 12-14 awards, corresponding to a total of $6M, for fiscal year 2013. Budgets for direct costs must be for $500,000 or less. The budget may include a request for animal care equipment, for alteration and renovation funds, or both. The requested project period for an award could be up to one year. Requests for no-cost extensions will be considered.
