Additional UAB-specific information can be found at the Office of Grants and Contracts Administration Web site. Every effort will be made to ensure information on these sites is current, but researchers are reminded that the definitive sites for ARRA opportunities are the funding agency sites.

As of April 29, UAB investigators had submitted 364 grant applications in response to Stimulus Package funding opportunities.
