Paylines are the funding cutoff points for grant applications. Following the paylines, NIAID funds most applications in order by percentile (for R01s only) or overall impact score (for others).
Each fiscal year, NIAID sets the initial paylines conservatively and sets fiscal year paylines later. We may fund additional applications beyond the paylines near the end of a fiscal year. Learn how NIAID Paylines and Budget Information Changes Throughout the Year.
