Intellectual Developmental Disabilities Research Center

Administrative Core Cost Sharing


Funding for core services is shared between the IDDRC and the other sources of support for approved projects/investigators. The intellectual, financial, and physical resources of home departments, the IDDRC, and investigators’ own grants are combined to produce a productive enterprise that would be prohibitively expensive for any one of these components to operate independently. Because needs and resources vary considerably across individually supported projects, cost sharing plans are developed on a case-by-case basis, taking into consideration both the needs of the project and the resources available.
