CTSA Multi-Institutional Grants
NC TraCS is interested in promoting inter-institutional collaborations across the CTSA Consortium of over 60 institutions.
Budget requests should range from $10,000 - $25,000 direct cost per CTSA (no indirects) with each CTSA contributing an equal amount. Funds cannot be transferred between institutions; therefore, funds will be spent at the CTSA that contributes them.
For a list of CTSA institutions, visit www.ctsacentral.org.
UNC CTSA leadership will review the submission and inform you if the UNC CTSA is supportive of the project. We can help you find collaborators at other CTSAs or here at UNC request a consultation for assistance.

New requirements for funded pilot grants
The NC TraCS Institute is funded through a CTSA grant from NIH's National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS). NCATS recently instituted a new policy requiring the review and approval of all TraCS pilot grants involving human subjects research prior to TraCS funds being released. Therefore, if your proposal is funded and involves human subjects research, TraCS will require additional documentation to send to NCATS. NCATS expects to complete their review in less than 30 days. The NCATS review can occur concurrently with the IRB review; however, final NCATS approval is contingent upon IRB approval.
