The purpose of this Notice is to announce an amendment to the RFA.  The 
section of the RFA titled, FUNDS AVAILABLE, currently states that an 
applicant may request a project period of up to 5 years and a budget for 
direct costs of up to $250,000 per year. This amendment removes the cap of 
$250,000 for direct cost per year.   

All other aspects of the RFA remain unchanged, including the following budget 
related issues: The participating IC(s) intend to commit approximately 
$6 million in FY 2003 to fund 17-22 new and continuing grants in response to 
this RFA.  Budgets proposed by applicants should be commensurate with the 
scope of the research proposed for the proposed project period.
