Grant and Contract Awards
The following displays the number and dollar amount of grant and contract awards, by state and by country.
Grants are used when no substantial programmatic involvement is anticipated between the NCI and the grant recipient during performance of the financially assisted activities and when there is no expectation on the part of the NCI of a specified service or product for NCI.
Contract mechanisms are used to procure cancer research services and other resources that the Federal government needs to advance the NCI Cancer Research Mission.
