Funding Opportunity Description
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is revising the Request for
Applications (RFA) published in the Federal Register of June 6, 2002
(67 FR 39013). This revised RFA supercedes the June 6, 2002, document
in its entirety. FDA's authority to enter into grants and cooperative
agreements is detailed under title XVII of the Public Health Service
Act (42 U.S.C. 300u-1) or the Radiation Control for Health and Safety
Act of 1968 (Pub. L. 90-602) (21 U.S.C. 360hh-ss, formerly 42 U.S.C.
1. Background
FDA recognizes the value of partially supporting scientific
meetings and conferences designed to coordinate, exchange, and
disseminate information when the objectives are clearly within the
scope of the agency's mission. FDA's policy is to participate with
other organizations to support meetings where practicable, rather than
provide sole support. In view of the diversity of interests among the
various FDA centers/offices, and in order to provide maximum
flexibility, FDA will not set rigid requirements concerning the type of
scientific meetings to be supported so long as they are within the
agency's mission.
II. Award Information
FDA views the partial support of scientific conferences as an
ongoing program and may award a limited number of grants each fiscal
year. These awards are subject to availability of funds and range from
$1,000 to $25,000 in direct costs only per conference. This
announcement is intended to be a ``Standing Program Announcement'' and
will be modified in the event of required changes to the program.
Support for this program will be in the form of a grant. These
grants will be subject to all policies and requirements that govern the support for small scientific conference grant programs of FDA, including the
provisions of 42 CFR part 52, and 45 CFR parts 74 and 92, as
applicable. The length of support will last for up to 1 year from date
of award.
III. Eligibility
1. Eligible Applicants
Conference grant support is available to any public or private
nonprofit entity including State and local units of government,
scientific and professional societies, faith-based organizations, and
for-profit entities. For-profit entities must commit to excluding fees
or profit from the conference in their request for support.
In the case of an international conference held in the United
States or Canada, the U.S. component of an established international
scientific or professional society is the eligible applicant. In
exceptional cases, where there is no U.S. component, a grant to support
a specific segment of an international conference may be awarded
directly to a foreign institution provided that the following
conditions are met: (1) Grants to foreign institutions or international
organizations are not prohibited under the governing legislation and
(2) approval of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
agency head or his or her designee is obtained in each case.
An individual is not eligible to receive grant funds in support of
a conference. As provided in 2 U.S.C. 1611, organizations described in
section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code that engage in lobbying
are not eligible to receive Federal funds constituting grant awards.
