Materials for Grantees
Superfund Research Program
This page contains information intended to assist SRP Grantees.
SRP Center Non-Competing Guidelines
The SRP Center Non-Competing Guidelines (107KB) are intended to assist existing, awarded SRP Centers in the preparation of the non-competing continuing application (i.e., the Type 5 Annual Progress Report or, simply, "Type 5") as well as to provide other information about reporting of Center updates and best practices related to issues that may arise throughout the duration of a grant cycle.
SRP General Administrative Supplements
General Administrative Supplements are requests for additional funds to meet emergency or other unanticipated situations that result in unforeseen costs (formerly known as "SRP Urgent Supplements") or to follow up on unanticipated results or to enhance components of research that have been unexpectedly productive (formerly known as "SRP Technology Transfer Supplements"). Grantees interested in submitting General Administrative Supplements should contact their SRP Program Administrator -- Heather Henry ( firstname.lastname@example.org) or Danielle Carlin ( email@example.com) -- about the nature of the request to determine if the Administrative Supplement process is appropriate and to receive detailed instructions on how to apply.
Lobbying Guidance for Grantee Activities
The NIH has provided guidance on the use of appropriated funds by NIH and its grantees for advocacy, lobbying, and related activities. For more information please see the Lobbying Guidance for Grantee Activities and the Reminder of Lobbying Prohibition on Federal Funds for All NIH-Supported Institutions .
SRP Data Collection Form
We are continuously collecting data about scientific accomplishments, community engagement, and research translation activities. Please help us by using the SRP Data Collection Form (http://tools.niehs.nih.gov/srp/resources/rtc.cfm) to share your updates.
Superfund Research Program CareerTrac - Tracking Trainees to Success
CareerTrac is an NIH/NIEHS funded system to enable evaluation of the training program for SRP trainees (i.e., pre- and post-doctoral trainees either directly supported or conducting research/activities supported by SRP P42 or R01 grants) specializing in the environmental health sciences. CareerTrac is intended to be a tool for NIEHS/SRP staff and SRP P42 and R01 grantees to evaluate the effectiveness and impact of the SRP training program and also to help NIEHS in overall coordination of its various research training programs. CareerTrac can be accessed through the NIEHS Research Partners webpage.
National Priorities List Sites
If you or one of your colleagues is interested in conducting research at a Superfund Site, the BEST time to get involved is when the site is proposed or newly added to the National Priorities List (NPL). The EPA releases the lists of proposed and added NPL sites twice a year, in the spring and fall. The links below will take you to the current lists, which contain information about the sites and contact information for the Site Managers.
