The extra CPC meeting tentatively scheduled for 2 November 2017 has been CANCELED. The CPC will now meet only once in November, on Thursday, 16 November 2017. The main item of business on this agenda will be public hearings on new proposals received for the regular Fy18 funding round. Other agenda requests and written materials for the November meeting are due on Friday, 27 October 2017.
All 2017-18 CPC meeting dates & deadlines are available from our Calendar link.
The required first steps in the funding process are an in-person orientation meeting with staff and discussion of a short pre-proposal with the CPC at one of its regular public meetings.
Sponsors are strongly encouraged to request orientation meetings and submit pre-proposals well ahead of the deadlines for their target funding round. The CPC has more time for thoughtful discussion of early pre-proposals, which can also help the Committee consider reserving current funds for future use.
