NIAID Paylines

NIAID Paylines

Updated October 17, 2018. We updated interim R01 paylines for FY 2019. 

Paylines are the funding cutoff points for grant applications. Following the paylines, NIAID funds most applications in percentile (for R01s only) or overall impact/priority score order (for others). Each fiscal year, NIAID sets the initial paylines conservatively and may fund additional applications beyond the paylines at the end of a fiscal year.
