A notice announcing the availability of Fiscal Year 2002 funds for cooperative agreements for the National Cancer Prevention and Control Program was published in the Federal Register on April 23, 2002, (67 FR 19932). The notice is amended as follows:
Page 19933, Column 1, Paragraph “C. Availability of Funds,” the following clarification is added: “Note: Awards under this program announcement will be on or about September 30, 2002 and will be made for a nine-month budget period for the first year which will end on June 29, 2003. As a result, the budget for the first year will reflect work for nine months, and subsequent years budgets will be for 12 months. As programs are funded on an annual basis, grantees under NCCCP and NBCCEDP may consider requesting additional funds in an amount equivalent to a 12-month award. The itemized budget for the first year must include a description and justification for the request. Breast and Cervical Cancer Programs are cautioned that the request must comply with the 60/40 distribution required under the program. This statement does not apply to NPCR programs since 3 month cost extensions under current grants for the period July 1, 2002 through September 29, 2002 were already funded with current year funding.”
