Joint Program Committee 6/ Combat Casualty Care Research Program -- Prolonged Field Care Research Award -- Deadlines Extended

Funding Agency:
Department of Defense

The intent of the PFCRA is to target the emerging need to provide extended trauma care prior to reaching a location that can provide definitive hemorrhage and contamination control. Trauma care during this period is often called “Prolonged Field Care” (PFC). Traditionally, improvements to the trauma care system have focused on shortening evacuation times from the point of injury to the first surgical site. However, in future conflicts or mass trauma events, it is anticipated that the initial evacuation time, and thus initial surgical hemorrhage and contamination control, may be delayed for hours or days.

This challenge also requires research to develop new solutions to provide for prolonged Damage Control Resuscitation (pDCR) including: support for medical providers in the out-of-hospital setting (point of injury, austere environment, or en route care) with limited resources; understanding the physiologic impact of pDCR; and techniques to mitigate the negative effects of delayed surgical intervention. The research and solutions must be focused on patient-level interventions and outcomes, rather than the broader trauma system. However, proposed research and solutions should consider the entire continuum of trauma care.

Organizations eligible to apply include Federal agencies, national, international, for-profit, nonprofit, public, and private organizations. • Refer to the General Application Instructions, Appendix 1, for general eligibility information.

Amount

$3,000,000

Amount Description

It is the responsibility of the PI to select the funding level that is most appropriate for the proposed research project. The requested budget level should be appropriate for the scope of research proposed. 

Funding Level 1: • The maximum period of performance is 3 years. • The anticipated total costs (direct and indirect) budgeted for the entire period of performance will not exceed $1.5 million (M). Indirect costs are to be budgeted in accordance with the organization’s negotiated rate. No budget will be approved by the Government exceeding $1.5M total costs or using an indirect rate exceeding the organization’s negotiated rate.

Funding Level 2: • The maximum period of performance is 3 years. • The allowable range of total costs (direct and indirect) budgeted for the entire period of performance is between $1.5M and $3.0M. Indirect costs are to be budgeted in accordance with the organization’s negotiated rate. No budget will be approved by the Government exceeding $3.0M total costs or using an indirect rate exceeding the organization’s negotiated rate.

For both funding levels: • The maximum period of performance is 3 years. • All direct and indirect costs of any subaward (subgrant or subcontract) must be included in the total direct costs of the primary award. • The applicant may request the entire maximum funding amount for a project that may have a period of performance less than the maximum 3 years.
