Each fiscal year, NIAID determines its payline and estimates the number of new and renewal awards the Institute can pay based on its budget and anticipated grant costs.
R01s. The Institute decides each fiscal year whether to cap direct cost increases for renewal R01 applications. For now, we expect the cap to remain at 20 percent. The renewal cap is part of NIAID's Financial Management Plan. To learn how we compute it, go to Planning a Budget in the Strategy for NIH Funding.
Program projects and cooperative agreements. NIAID accepts few investigator-initiated renewals of program project applications and cooperative agreements, which need our preapproval. We generally budget for five to ten program project grants each fiscal year.
