NIH Receives $10 Billion in Recovery Act Funds
On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, ARRA. Among the goals of the Recovery Act are to preserve and create jobs, promote economic recovery, and provide investments to increase economic efficiency by spurring technological advances in science and health.
As part of the Recovery Act, NIH has received $10 billion to be used in Fiscal Years 2009 and 2010. NIDCD's portion of this is approximately $100 million. Already, NIH has released several funding opportunities through the Recovery Act, including:
- Challenge Grants to support research on topic areas that address specific scientific and health research challenges in biomedical and behavioral research that would benefit from significant 2-year jumpstart funds.
- Administrative Supplements to provide funds for up to two years of support, as funds allow, to current R, P, U, or K series grant award recipients in key areas of interest.
