National Institute on Aging (NIA)
The National Institute on Aging (NIA) is instituting a dollar cap 
on Program Project (P01) applications. To continue to fund a 
diverse research portfolio that fulfills the mandate of the 
National Institute on Aging (NIA), new and competing continuation 
P01 applications (Type 1 and 2) will be limited to no more than 
$1.5 million in direct costs in the first year (exclusive of 
facilities and administrative (F&A) costs on subcontracts).  
Budget increases in non-competing years will be at the level of 
the standard NIH adjustments that reflect the Biomedical Research 
& Development Index. 
This policy becomes effective with applications submitted for the 
June 1, 2004 receipt dates. Exceptions to this cap will be 
allowed rarely and only after approval by the NIA-wide Planning
