…they are looking specifically for COMMUNITY-BASED programs to submit proposals, and they do NOT expect hard core scientific writing as a result. [does this mean communities can’t be expected to do hard-core science or that hard-core scientists aren’t expected to write?]

Deadline for submissions is August 31, 2006; see below for application information. is not being utilized because these are awards, not grants.
