Grants Overview

Grants, Cooperative Agreements and Other Transaction Agreements for Research

USAMRAA is the acquisition activity for the USAMRDC. In response to applications submitted under Funding Opportunity Announcements posted by our activity to www.GRANTS.GOV that are recommended to receive funding, the Grants Division at USAMRAA obligates funds appropriated for USAMRDC, its Subordinate Commands and the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) for research and development and provides administration for the resulting awards. Grants, cooperative agreements, and other transaction agreements for research our activity awards are generally multi-year awards using multi-year funding, which means that any funds remaining from one year may be carried over to the next performance year.
