NIAID Paylines

Find all current NIAID paylines in the table below. Our most recent update was on October 28, 2021 when NIAID set interim paylines below for research enhancement awards (R15), small business technology transfer (STTR R41, R42), and small business innovation research (SBIR R43, R44). Other paylines remain as shown below. Find older paylines in the Archive of Final NIAID Paylines by Fiscal Year.

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.
