Recovery Act Funds for Administrative Supplements

Some funds directed to the National Cancer Institute (NCI) — through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (“Recovery Act” or “ARRA”) — have been designated for an initiative known as the NCI-Activities to Promote Research Collaboration (NCI-APRC). Applications for these funds are due May 1, 2009.

Through the NCI-APRC program, the NCI encourages requests for supplemental funding in FY2009 for existing NCI-funded research projects to support and encourage new multidisciplinary scientific collaborations among NCI grantees, as well as with other members of the scientific community. The NCI-APRC Program can support novel collaborative activities in cancer biology, cancer control and population sciences, cancer surveillance, cancer prevention, health services and outcomes research, and cancer treatment and diagnosis that bring together new ideas and approaches from disparate scientific disciplines. The proposed NCI-APRC activities must be within the overall scope of the active parent award and the collaborative activity must be new.

Guidelines and more information about NCI-APRC can be found on the NCI Website.
