The purpose of this Notice is to reaffirm the commitment of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) to supporting the program project (P01) and center grant (P50) mechanisms and to announce policy revisions related to NINDS P01 and unsolicited P50 applications.

The program project and center grant mechanisms are important and valuable mechanisms for advancing collaborative science in areas relevant to the NINDS. The following revisions are the product of open session discussions during the February 2007 National Neurological Disorders and Stroke Advisory Council meeting.

Effective with the September 25, 2007 receipt date (May 2008 Council), the NINDS is implementing a 10 year time limit on all P01 grants and unsolicited P50 center grants.

The full set of policies and procedures related to NINDS program project and center grants is available at the following location: http://www.ninds.nih.gov/funding/ppg_guidelines.htm.  For program project grant and unsolicited center grant applications (and any other unsolicited grant application) requesting $500,000 or more in direct costs (exclusive of any consortium F&A costs) for any year, the applicant must: 1) contact the NINDS program staff at least 6 weeks before submitting the application; 2) obtain agreement from the NINDS staff that NINDS will accept the application for consideration for awards; and 3) include a cover letter with the application identifying the NINDS staff member who agreed to accept assignment of the application. Additional information on this policy is available at: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-02-004.html.
