NIDCR Completes its Commitment of American Recovery and Reinvestment Act Funds
Overview of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act)
The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act) was signed into law by President Obama on February 17th, 2009. It is an unprecedented effort to jumpstart our economy, create or save millions of jobs, and put a down payment on addressing long-neglected challenges so our country can thrive in the 21st century. The Act is an extraordinary response to a crisis unlike any since the Great Depression, and includes measures to modernize our nation's infrastructure, enhance energy independence, expand educational opportunities, preserve and improve affordable health care, provide tax relief, and protect those in greatest need.
NIDCR ARRA Funding FY 2009–2010
NIDCR received $101,819,000 from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to fund oral and craniofacial research in fiscal years 2009 and 2010. As of September 30, 2009, NIDCR has spent or committed to spend 97% of those funds primarily through a variety of extramural grants. This pie chart shows a breakdown of NIDCR’s ARRA investment.
The largest percentage (30%) of our ARRA funding went to payline extensions – the funding of applications that were outside of our normal base appropriation payline. The Challenge Grant (RC1) and Grand Opportunities “GO” Grant (RC2) programs were funded with 23% and 12% of NIDCR ARRA funds, respectively. Read more about NIDCR ARRA funding
