Limited Submissions

What is a Limited Submission?

Limited submissions are funding opportunities where the funder has limited the number of applications from an organization. Research Development Services (RDS) facilitates limited submissions for federal and foundation opportunities for UA. Selected proposals will need to follow UA proposal submission procedures. Please note that proposals to private foundations may require submission and coordination through the University of Arizona Foundation.

The Limited Submissions Newsletter is sent to subscribers on Thursdays and lists all current Upcoming and Open Limited Submissions available to the UA campus. Subscribe here

Limited Submission Preferred Timeline

We strive to notify campus of internal competitions for limited submissions at least 12 weeks prior to the funder’s deadline. Applicants have two weeks to submit an internal pre-proposal to RDS and another 1-2 weeks to receive the go-ahead to submit or not. This timeline allows 8-9 weeks for applicants to prepare their proposal for submission to the funder.

February 16, 2021

UA may submit 1 application. 

This notice announces the opportunity to apply for funding under the Building Capacity to Improve Collecting and Reporting Viral Suppression Data to the Medicaid Adult Core Set cooperative agreement, as a Special Project of National Significance. This initiative seeks to develop strategies to build capacity among HIV surveillance and Medicaid programs for reporting high-quality HIV viral suppression data to comply with reporting of the HIV Viral Load Suppression (HVL-AD) measure on the Medicaid Adult Core Set. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Child and Adult Core Set Annual Review Workgroup has encouraged efforts to create partnerships among federal agencies (CMS, Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention (CDC), and HRSA); Medicaid and public health agencies; and managed care plans to help states gain access to the laboratory data required to measure viral suppression. Recommendations from the workgroup include the sharing of information and lessons learned across states as necessary. This initiative seeks to support the implementation of the recommendations from the HIV/AIDS Health Improvement Affinity Group (HHIAG) with the ultimate goals of improving health outcomes for people with HIV through more efficient and complete strategies in the reporting of viral suppression measures. HRSA will award one (1) System Coordination Provider (SCP) to select, fund, and work with up to 10 RWHAP Part B states1 and their associated HIV surveillance and Medicaid programs. There are three (3) goals of the program: 1. Build capacity of up to 10 states to report high-quality (i.e., accurate and complete) HIV viral suppression data to Medicaid with the goal of improving reporting of the viral suppression measure (HVL-AD) to CMS as part of annual reporting of the Medicaid Adult Core Set (Implementation Phase). a. The SCP will facilitate and work with the selected states on the implementation and piloting of strategies through the adoption of the Institute of Healthcare Improvement (IHI) Breakthrough Series Learning Collaborative Model as its framework to achieve improvements.

Minor Crop Pest Management Program Interregional Research Project #4 (IR-4) NIFA USDA Environmental Sciences Grants 02/12/2021

February 12, 2021

UA may submit 1 application.

The purpose of the IR-4 program is to enable the crop protection industry to provide safe, effective, and economical crop protection products for growers and consumers of minor/specialty crops. The crop protection industry cannot justify the costs associated with the research and development, registration, production, and marketing of crop protection products for minor/specialty crops due to the smaller market base and limited sales potential. The IR-4 program provides the assistance needed to ensure that new and more effective crop protection products are developed and made available to minor/specialty crop producers. These efforts require effective collaborations among federal agencies, the crop protection industry, and land-grant colleges and universities.

Dept. of Labor: YouthBuild U.S. Department of Labor STEM, Education, Training Grants 02/09/2021

February 9, 2021

UA may submit 1 application.

The Employment and Training Administration (ETA), U.S. Department of Labor (DOL, or the Department, or we), announces the availability of approximately $89 million in grant funds authorized by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) (Pub. L. 113-128) for YouthBuild.


Under this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), DOL will award grants through a competitive process to organizations providing pre-apprenticeship services that support education, occupational skills training, and employment services to at-risk youth, ages 16 to 24, while performing meaningful work and service to their communities. In addition to construction skills training, YouthBuild applicants may include occupational skills training in other in-demand industries. This expansion into additional in-demand industries is the Construction Plus component, a priority in this grant competition.
The YouthBuild model balances project-based academic learning and occupational skills training to prepare at-risk youth for career placement. The academic component assists youth who are often significantly behind in basic skill development in obtaining a high school diploma or state high school equivalency credential. The occupational skills training component prepares at-risk youth for apprenticeship and other career pathways and/or further education or training. It also supports the goal of increasing affordable housing within communities by teaching youth construction skills learned by building or significantly renovating homes for sale or rent to low-income families or transitional housing for homeless families or individuals.

Enhanced Surveillance Network to Assess Burden, Natural History, and Effectiveness of Vaccines to Prevent Enteric and Respiratory Viruses in Children Department of Health and Human Services Biomedical, Clinical & Life Sciences Grants 02/08/2021

February 8 2021

UA may submit 1 application.

The goal of this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is to support a network of US institutions to develop and implement standard research protocols to conduct prospective active surveillance for: a) acute gastroenteritis (AGE) due to norovirus, rotavirus and other enteric viruses; b) acute respiratory illnesses (ARI) due to respiratory viruses including, but not limited to, influenza, RSV, parainfluenza viruses, human metapneumovirus, rhinoviruses, enteroviruses (including EV-D68), adenoviruses, and coronaviruses (including SARS-CoV-2); and c) acute flaccid myelitis (AFM) syndrome and multisystem inflammatory syndrome in children (MIS-C) among pediatric patients seeking healthcare at medical institutions. The network should also provide accurate estimates of the effectiveness in this population of influenza, rotavirus, COVID-19 and other vaccines against respiratory or enteric virus-associated illnesses projected to become available during the period of performance (e.g., RSV, norovirus). Participating institutions should identify AGE, ARI, AFM and MIS-C illnesses among pediatric patients seeking healthcare or diagnostic testing for acute illness in inpatient, outpatient and emergency departments. Recipients should enroll patients meeting standard symptom criteria, and confirm viral infection using approved molecular assays. Vaccine effectiveness (VE) estimates will be calculated. Estimates of VE, burden of disease, and information on the natural history of disease will be used to: a) inform best practices for diagnosis and treatment protocols; b) inform vaccine recommendations; and c) assess public health impact of vaccination and public health programs to prevent viral illness-related healthcare encounters and medical visits among pediatric populations.

Promoting the Importance of Infant and Childhood Vaccination Among Pregnant Women by Prenatal Care Providers Department of Health and Human Services Biomedical, Clinical & Life Sciences Grants 02/02/2021

February 2, 2021

UA may submit one application.

The purpose of this notice of funding opportunity is to investigate the acceptability, feasibility, and effectiveness of promoting infant immunization during prenatal care visits, leading parents to vaccinate their children confidently. Prenatal care providers, including obstetricians and midwives, are trusted sources of information for pregnant women, yet many feel uncomfortable providing information or discussing concerns about infant vaccination because they may consider this to be outside of their area of expertise. This represents a significant missed opportunity to provide important information to pregnant women/parents from a trusted source at a critical time when research suggests opinions about childhood vaccination are forming.
