You may apply for a multiproject grant in one the following two ways:
P01 grants support multidisciplinary, long-term research programs headed by an investigator who brings in a group of other investigators to support the project and share resources. This is the only option that allows investigator-initiated applications—go to the NIAID Investigator-Initiated Program Project Applications (P01) FOA.
P30 center core grants that support shared resources and facilities for a multidisciplinary research team or group of investigators focusing on a common research topic.
P50 grants are research center grants where a multidisciplinary group of investigators share a common research topic. They are solicited through RFAs.
U19 grants are cooperative agreements, requiring substantial involvement from agency staff. See NIAID's Cooperative Agreements Staff Portal.
