The Building Research Infrastructure and Capacity (BRIC) program is a merit-based, peer-reviewed program in response to Congressional intent to broaden geographic distribution of health services research funding among institutions located in states in which the aggregate success rate for applications to the AHRQ has historically been low. This RFA will use the Exploratory Grant (P20) award mechanism. AHRQ intends to commit approximately $1 million in FY 2005 to fund four to six new grants in response to this RFA.

Applications may be submitted only by institutions within BRIC-eligible states. BRIC-eligible states include all states which have received less than $3 million dollars in AHRQ support over the past five years (FY1999-FY2003). These states include Alaska, Arkansas, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, West Virginia, and Wyoming. In addition, institutions in the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands are also eligible. Any individual with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research is invited to work with their institution to develop an application for support. The application must include a proposed institutional plan for the development of a health services research infrastructure and one proposed research project.

Applications must be prepared using the PHS 398 research grant application instructions and forms (rev. 5/2001). The PHS 398 is available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html in an interactive format.
