If you’re submitting more than one application, you may ask for a combined level of effort that exceeds 100 percent (e.g., 60 percent on one application and 70 percent on another). If both applications are funded, we'll adjust your effort to be no more than 100 percent total when we negotiate your awards.

Keep in mind that when you take this route, you risk having to cut your Specific Aims, reduce your effort on one of your other awards, or decline your award.
