CPRIT Proposes Changes to Current Agency Rules
During their meeting on November 28, 2018, the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) Oversight Committee approved release of proposed changes to current agency rules for public comment.
The proposed amendments affect Texas Administrative Code Chapter 703 related to processes, annual training, audit deadlines, and reporting periods for Institute grant recipients.
The proposed amendments were published in the January 4th edition of the Texas Register and are also available on the CPRIT web site, which may be viewed at https://www.cprit.state.tx.us/about-us/statute-rules-and-grant-policies-guide/.
Written comments about the proposed rule changes should be submitted to CPRIT no later February 4, 2019. Written comments may be sent to Ms. Kristen Doyle, CPRIT’s General Counsel, by email kdoyle@cprit.texas.gov; by fax 512-475-2563; or by mail addressed to the Cancer Prevention & Research Institute of Texas, P.O.

AHRQ Announces Change in Grant Recipient Purchasing of Identifiable CMS Data
The purpose of this notice is to inform the research community that the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) will be phasing out the Inter-Agency Agreement (IAA) it has maintained for the purchase of identifiable Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) data used on AHRQ-supported grants.
Historically, the IAA that AHRQ maintained with CMS for the purchase of identifiable CMS data for AHRQ grantees had provided a benefit to AHRQ, CMS, and grantees using identifiable CMS data. However, grant applicants can now obtain accurate costs estimates for identifiable CMS data and pay directly for such data (see the Research Data Assistance Center (ResDAC) website: https://www.resdac.org/). For this reason, applicants will be required to request and budget for the purchase of identifiable CMS data within grant application proposals, just as they currently do for non-identifiable CMS data or for data from other sources. 
This is a change from AHRQ’s long-standing procedure of having applicants describe identifiable CMS data needs and their estimated costs in the grant application narrative but not including the cost of identifiable CMS data on the detailed budget page. Effective beginning with the February 2019 Application Cycle, applicants must include identifiable CMS data costs within the requested application budget. Applicants must account for associated indirect costs, and abide by any total cost cap imposed by an AHRQ Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).

Research Enhancement Award Program (REAP) for Health Professional Schools and Graduate Schools (R15 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): PAR-19-134

APPLICATION DEADLINE: 2/25, 6/25, 10/25 by 5 pm local time of applicant organization. Expires 1/8/22.
$ AVAILABLE: The number of awards is contingent upon NIH appropriations and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.
ELIGIBILITY: Please see URL for complete eligibility requirements.
PURPOSE: The purpose of the Research Enhancement Award Program (REAP) for Health Professional Schools and Graduate Schools is to stimulate basic and clinical research in educational institutions that provide baccalaureate or advanced degrees for a significant number of the Nation's research scientists, but that have not been major recipients of NIH support. REAP grants create opportunities for scientists and institutions otherwise unlikely to participate extensively in NIH research programs to contribute to the Nation's biomedical and behavioral research effort. REAP grants are intended to support small-scale research projects proposed by faculty members of eligible, domestic institutions, to expose undergraduate and/or graduate students at health professional schools or graduate schools to meritorious research projects, and to strengthen the research environment of the applicant institution.
Eligible institutions must award NIH-relevant baccalaureate or advanced degrees in health professions and have received less than $6 million per year of NIH support (total costs) in 4 of the last 7 fiscal years. In this announcement, a college is a stand-alone entity and not a component of a university system.

Suicide Prevention Lifeline Crisis Center Follow-Up Expansion Grant Program: SM-19-008
SOURCE: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 3/11/19.
$ AVAILABLE: $672,383 for two awards.
ELIGIBILITY: Eligibility is limited to NSPL Crisis Centers because they have been specifically trained in NSPL procedures pertaining to follow-up of persons at imminent risk of suicide and risk assessment, and are the only entities that can obtain the required consents from NSPL Crisis Center callers for follow-up activities.
PURPOSE: The purpose of this program is to provide an integrated hub that: (1) ensures systematic follow-up of suicidal persons who contact a NSPL Crisis Center; (2) provides enhanced coordination of crisis stabilization, crisis respite, and hospital emergency department services; and (3) enhances coordination with mobile on-site crisis response. In effect, with the resources provided, the hub should not lose track of a person in a suicidal crisis as they interface with crisis systems. It is expected that this program will promote continuity of care to safeguard the well-being of individuals who are at risk of suicide.

Webinar - Post-Award Noncompliance and Audit Resolution
SPONSOR: Thompson Grants 
WHEN: February 5, noon to 1:30 pm.
WHERE: Webinar.
DESCRIPTION: With federal funds important to your nonprofit’s revenue stream, this webinar is a must! In just 90 minutes, Venable’s Diz Locaria takes you through the entire lifecycle of what happens when noncompliance is discovered. You will learn the elements of effective compliance under the uniform guidance and how to turn disclosure and cooperation into powerful tools for resolving problems—without facing severe penalties.
Prepare for everything “noncompliance” can trigger. You will learn steps to take when an issue is brought to light. You will master proactive disclosure, how to write a good disclosure statement and how much (or little) to include. You will also explore the most productive ways to interact with the agencies involved. Plus, you will have the chance to ask your own questions during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
COST: Live: $249. On demand: $249. Live and on demand: $349. For more information and registration go to http://grants.thompson.com/Post-Award-Noncompliance-and-Audit-Resolution-February-2019?src=EM&_zs=hXbRL1&_zl=2EFq4

Webinar - General Operating Support: Making the Case to Grant Makers
SPONSOR: The Chronicle of Philanthropy
WHEN: March 14, 1 to 2 pm.
WHERE: Webinar.
DESCRIPTION: Raising money for rent, salaries, and other administrative expenses is difficult. Many foundations want to support specific projects rather than covering “overhead” costs. Only 31 percent of fundraisers feel they can talk to donors about the need for such funding.
How can you demonstrate to grant makers the return on investing in your organization’s operations and long-term health?
Join us for a one-hour online session to learn from representatives of two large national foundations.
You’ll hear from Kathy Reich, director of the Ford Foundation’s Build program, a $200 million-a-year effort that provides general operating support to groups tied to social movements. She’ll offer insights into how to make a strong case for unrestricted dollars, pitfalls to avoid, and how to negotiate the amount you need. Reich also will provide real-world examples of smart ways to demonstrate the impact of grants that cover operating costs.
COST: $79 before March 7. $99 after March 7. For more information and registration go to https://www.philanthropy.com/webinars/detail/1195?CID=WEBINARS1195E2
