ARRA: What is it?

The package contains extensive funding for science, engineering research and infrastructure, and more limited funding for education, social sciences and the arts. Read the full bill.

What can you do right now?

Contact your Program Officer

From the information that we have received from our neighboring California Universities, you should contact your Program Officer at all the funding agencies if you have research that would fall under ARRA criteria; much of this funding will be distributed quickly. Requests for supplements, if appropriate, on existing awards from NIH are also being accepted. Currently NSF is not offering supplements. We anticipate that small, less than $100,000 supplements, from NIH will be non-competitive.  The one reminder being made to any investigator is your progress and final reports must be current.
