Support can be requested to alter and renovate (A&R) the animal facilities as well as to improve the animal care equipment in the facility. It is expected that all award funds will be expended expeditiously and that applicants will consider the use of sustainable design technologies and design approaches. Budgets for direct costs must be for $500,000 or less.
