Grants Overview

Grants and Cooperative Agreements

USAMRAA is the acquisition activity for the USAMRMC. In response to applications submitted under Funding Opportunity Announcements posted by our activity to www.GRANTS.GOV that are recommended to receive funding, the Assistance Agreements Group at USAMRAA obligates funds appropriated for USAMRMC, its Subordinate Commands and the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP) for research and development and provides administration for the resulting awards. The grants and cooperative agreements 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.
