The National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) encourages the submission of individual animal resource improvement grant applications from biomedical research institutions. The major objective of this program is to upgrade animal facilities to support the conduct of Public Health Service (PHS) supported biomedical and behavioral research. The $500,000 request may be used (a) entirely for movable equipment (e.g., cages, static racks); (b) for renovation, repair or modernizing the facility and for fixed equipment; and (c) in any combination of option (a) and (b) to reach the $500,000 maximum request limit of the award. Facilities and administrative costs are not allowed. The matching requirement for all applicants has been eliminated.
