CRIF:CRF Cyberinfrastructure and Research Facilities (CRIF:CRF) provides funds to establish and support either centers for the development of cyber-enabled chemical research, or regional or national instrumentation facilities. Awards in CRIF:CRF range from $300,000-1,200,000/yr for up to five years.
