one-time administrative supplement of up to $150,000 in direct costs (excluding consortium facilities and administrative costs) to replace lost and/or damaged research resources; and/or 3)up to $250,000 to replace a single item of equipment so long as that request is accompanied by well-documented support for the need to replace that item of equipment; and/or 4)minor alternation and renovation to research facilities up to $500,00 0. Supplement requests will be routed to the appropriate NIH Institutes and Centers for consideration.
The number of awards issued will depend on the number of applicants received and funneled through the review process.
Benefits of this opportunity are restricted to applicants located in a county or parish where a major disaster has been declared under the Stafford Act as a result of Hurricanes Fiona and Ian.
Grants at NIH-supported institutions impacted by Hurricanes Fiona and Ian will be eligible for both the funded extension and/or administrative supplements.
