Post Award


CPRIT grants are state funds from the state agency created when voters approved a constitutional amendment in 2007 establishing the Cancer Prevention and Research Institute of Texas (CPRIT) and authorized the state to issue $3 billion in bonds to fund groundbreaking cancer research and prevention programs and services in Texas. CPRIT’s goal is to expedite innovation and commercialization in the area of cancer research and to enhance access to evidence-based prevention programs and services throughout the state. All CPRIT-funded research will be conducted in state by Texas-based scientists and reflect CPRIT’s mission to attract and expand the state’s research capabilities and create high quality new jobs in Texas.

General Guidelines

  • Carry-forward for all awards require agency approval starting in Year 02.
  • All budget modifications must be submitted to CPRIT. If the transfer is less than 10% of the total award we can approve it locally but CPRIT will need to update their budgets. Send all budget modifications to PAF for review and submission.
  • Financial reports are for expenses only. If an invoice that belongs in Year 01 is paid after the budget period has ended it will be included in the Year 02 report. Accruals and encumbrances will not be reflected on financial reports. This makes it very important to get expenses processed as soon as possible. 
  • Salary cap of $200,000 is applied to all CPRIT awards.

See the CPRIT Grants Policies Guide for additional information and guidance.
