No fixed payline exists for R21 awards. R21 applications received under PAR-18-433 and PAR-18-207 are considered for funding on a case-by-case basis based on programmatic considerations.

 No fixed payline exists for R03, R15, P41, and U01 awards. Applications are considered on a case-by-case basis based on programmatic considerations. Bioengineering Research Partnership (BRP) U01s do not receive any administrative cuts.

5  No fixed payline exists for F, K, T32, SBIR, and STTR grants. A limited number of awards are available for highly meritorious applications. Funding decisions are also based on programmatic considerations and available funds.
