Funding & Notices
NCATS gives priority to those resources and projects that catalyze innovation in translational science and enable the biomedical research community to realize the potential of science to deliver tangible improvements in human health. Individual consideration is given to each grant application. Final award decisions are based on a variety of criteria, including but not limited to scientific merit, program relevance and balance, responsiveness to the Center’s priorities, and availability of funds.
Fiscal Year 2013
Competing grants will be funded at appropriate levels based on programmatic and Office of Grants Management funding recommendations.
Non-competing grants will be awarded at a reduction of no more than 6-8 percent from the committed level. Future year commitments will remain unchanged. This policy applies to all grants except Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards, institutional career awards, conference grants and Small Business Innovation Research/Small Business Technology Transfer grants, which will be awarded at committed levels.
Non-competing awards previously issued in fiscal year 2013 under the continuing resolution at 90 percent of the committed level will be revised to restore funds to the appropriate level.
