Major Changes in Budget Request

Fiscal Year 2017 Superfund Budget

Major changes by budget mechanism and/or budget program detail are briefly described below. The FY 2017 President's Budget for NIEHS Superfund is $77.349 million, the same as the FY 2016 Enacted level.

From FY 2016 to FY 2017, there is a shift of research project grant dollars from noncompeting grants and administrative supplements to competing awards. Since 2006, the Superfund Research Program (SRP) has been on an annual review cycle. NIEHS will now begin soliciting applications every two and a half years. Awards will be made for up to five years in duration. These changes are being made to strengthen the breadth of the scientific portfolio and to improve efficiencies in the fiscal management of the program.
