Other Eligible Applicants include the following: Faith-based or Community-based Organizations; Indian/Native American Tribal Governments (Other than Federally Recognized); AHRQ¿s authorizing legislation does not allow for-profit organizations to be eligible to lead applications under this research mechanism.
For-profit organizations may participate in projects as members of consortia or as subcontractors only.
Applications submitted by for-profit organizations or foreign institutions will not be reviewed.
Organizations described in section 501(c) 4 of the Internal Revenue Code that engage in lobbying are not eligible.
AHRQ encourages institutions that have not previously received support from AHRQ to apply.
Applicants are encouraged to develop partnerships with entities such as ACTION, CERTS, DEcIDE Network, EPCS, PBRNS, health care plans, state and local governments, VA Medical Centers and other applied settings.
Seasoned behavioral sciences, engineering, mathematics/statistics, clinical sciences, and health services research training programs are also strongly encouraged to partner with multiple components at their existing institutions, with newly emerging behavioral sciences, engineering, mathematics/statistics, clinical sciences, and health services research training programs at other institutions and with emerging centers of excellence.
HHS grants policy requires that the grant recipient perform a substantive role in the conduct of the planned project or program activity and not merely serve as a conduit of funds to another party or parties.
If consortium/contractual activities represent a significant portion of the overall project, the applicant must justify why the applicant organization, rather than the party(s) performing this portion of the overall project, should be the grantee and what substantive role the applicant organization will play.
Justification can be provided in the Specific Aims or Research Strategy section of the PHS398 Research Training Program Plan Component sections of the SF424 (R and R) application.
There is no budget allocation guideline for determining substantial involvement; determination of substantial involvement is based on a review of the primary project activities for which grant support is provided and the organization(s) that will be performing those activities.Full Opportunity Web Address:http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-HS-12-008.htmlContact:
