Eligibility Requirements

All organizations administering an eligible parent award may apply for a supplement under this announcement.

This announcement is for supplements to existing projects. To be eligible, the parent award must be active and the research proposed in the supplement must be accomplished within the competitive segment. The proposed supplement must be to provide for an increase in costs due to unforeseen circumstances. All additional costs must be within the scope of the peer reviewed and approved project.

IMPORTANT: The research proposed by the NIH grantee in the supplement application must be within the original scope of the NIH-supported grant project.

Applicant organizations may submit more than one application, provided that each is sufficiently distinct from any other administrative supplement currently under consideration by the awarding NIH Institute or Center. 

For multi-site collaborations the application is to have a single EHS CC Director identified as the Contact PD/PI who is responsible for submitting it. One application may be submitted per round per lead EHS CC in the “Scientific” area and one more may be submitted as a Community Engagement Core) “CEC” focus. However, an EHS CC may take part in other projects in which it is not the lead. Applicants are encouraged to contact Scientific/Research Staff to discuss their projects prior to submission.  




Amount Description

Application budgets are limited to no more than $100,000 direct costs per collaborative projects, and must reflect the actual needs of the proposed project.

The funding mechanism being used to support this program, administrative supplements, can be used to cover cost increases that are associated with achieving certain new research objectives, as long as the research objectives are within the original scope of the peer reviewed and approved project, or the cost increases are for unanticipated expenses within the original scope of the project. Any cost increases need to result from making modifications to the project that would increase or preserve the overall impact of the project consistent with its originally approved objectives and purposes.
