SRP Funding Opportunities

Superfund Research Program

This webpage provides information on current and upcoming SRP funding opportunities, as well as basic information for those interested in applying for SRP grants.

Multiproject Center Grants (P42)

Multiproject Center Grants (P42) - This program supports coordinated, multiproject, multi- and interdisciplinary Centers that address the broad, complex health and environmental issues that arise from hazardous waste sites. SRP Center grants support problem-based, solution-oriented research Centers that consist of multiple, integrated projects representing the biomedical and environmental science and engineering disciplines. The Center cores also are tasked with administrative, community engagement, research translation, research support, and training functions.

The most recent request for applications (RFA) was released on July 3, 2018, and the application deadline is December 19, 2018. For additional information, see the Multiproject Center Grant RFA and the SRP Multiproject Center Grant Funding Opportunities page. Please direct any questions to SRP Health Scientist Administrator staff.

See the Currently Funded Multiproject Research Centers (P42).

Individual Research Grants (R01)

Individual Research Grants (R01) - This program is designed to address specific issues that complement the multiproject research Centers, meet high priority research needs of the national Superfund Program, or tackle issues of emerging concern. Grants awarded under this mechanism will be for discrete, single projects. Please direct questions to Heather Henry at or 984-287-3268.

See the Currently Funded Individual Research Grants (R01).

Small Business Innovation Research Grants (SBIR R43, R44)

Hazardous Substances Detection and Remediation Program (R43, R44) - This program supports Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) Grants to foster the commercialization of technologies, products, and devices developed by the SRP and others. Application receipt dates are April 5, September 5, and January 5. If interested in applying, please contact Heather Henry at or 984-287-3268.

See the SBIR/STTR webpage for application information as well as other SBIR/STTR opportunities within NIEHS. In addition, check out the Currently Funded SBIR/STTR Programs.

Occupational and Safety Training Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25)

Occupational and Safety Training Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25) - The overarching goal of this program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs. Grants are awarded to Higher Education Institutions to develop continuing education and academic curricula on the occupational health and safety management practices in the areas of emerging technologies (e.g., emerging hazardous waste products, green chemistry, sustainable remediation, and detection technologies) for industrial hygienists and graduate students involved in the research, evaluation, management, and handling of hazardous substances. Please direct any questions to Danielle Carlin at or 984-287-3244.

See the Currently Funded Occupational and Safety Training Education Programs on Emerging Technologies (R25).

Support for Conferences and Scientific Meetings (R13)

Superfund Research Program Support for Conferences and Scientific Meetings (R13) - SRP supports investigator initiated scientific meetings that advance the field of environmental health science related to the mission of SRP. The SRP participates in PA-16-294: NIH Support for Conferences and Scientific Meetings (Parent R13 Clinical Trial Not Allowed). SRP broadens the scientific scope of the current NIEHS R13 program to include non-biomedical environmental science topics reflected in the SRP mandates.

For more information, please see NOT-ES-12-006. Application receipt dates are April 12, August 12, and December 12. Instructions for applying may be found on the NIEHS R13/U13 webpage. Please direct any questions to Brittany Trottier at or 984-287-3331.
