Award Recipient's Recovery Act Responsibilities

Recovery Act funding is a one-time increase to the NIH budget to promote economic recovery.  The NIH Standard Terms and Conditions for ARRA Awards outlines new reporting requirements, so recipients of ARRA funds should review it carefully.

For participation in NHLBI-specific Recovery Act opportunities, requestors of funds need to pay particular attention to guidelines provided in each category and should understand their responsibility as a participant.

In order to ensure that all expenditures advance the objectives of the Recovery Act, participants have been asked to provide a detailed and explicit statement as to how their applications support the Recovery Act’s goals and objectives to stimulate the economy while advancing science. 

The NHLBI must obligate its complete allocation no later than September 2010. Awards must be spent by September 2011, unless otherwise stipulated.
