Find all current NIAID paylines in the table below. Our most recent update was on January 23, 2023: We updated the interim paylines for research projects (R01), small grants (R03), and exploratory/developmental grants (R21).
Paylines are funding cutoff points for the grant application types listed below. NIAID funds most applications in order by percentile (R01 only) or overall impact score (others). Each FY, NIAID sets initial paylines conservatively and sets final paylines later. We may fund beyond the paylines near the end of a FY.
