The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), National 
Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), and National Institute 
of Mental Health (NIMH) have revised the application guidelines for PAS-99-080 
(http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAS-99-080.html) to change the 
maximum direct costs that may be requested for future applications that propose 
the involvement of a consortium/contractual arrangement in which collaborations 
to perform research responsive to this PA are established between scientists at 
differing institutions.  Applications that include a consortium/contractual 
arrangement may request up to a maximum of $150,000 direct costs, including the 
facilities and administrative costs (indirect costs) for the consortium 
institution.  Applications proposing research at a single institution may 
request up to a maximum of $125,000 direct costs.

The specific revisions made to PAS-99-080 appear in the "Mechanism of Support" 
and "Application Procedures" sections. 

The first revision to the "Mechanism of Support" section appears at the end of 
the first paragraph.

Applicants may request up to three years of support.  Applications for research 
at a single institution may request up to a maximum of $125,000 direct costs per 
year.  Applications that include a consortium/contractual arrangement may 
request up to a maximum of $150,000 direct costs, including the facilities and 
administrative costs (indirect costs) of the consortium institution.

The second revision to the "Mechanism of Support" section appears at the 
beginning of the third paragraph.

Applications will request direct costs in $25,000 modules, up to a total direct 
cost of $125,000 per year for up to three years for applications proposing 
research at a single institution and up to a total direct cost of $150,000 per 
year for up to three years for applications that include a 
subcontract/consortium arrangement.  The cost of equipment is included in the 
budget limitation. 

The final revision to the "Application Procedures" section appears in the 
instructions for the Face Page.

Face Page - Items 7a and 7b should be completed, indicating Direct Costs (in 
$25,000 increments up to a maximum of $125,000 for research at a single 
institution, or up to a maximum of $150,000 for research involving a 
consortium/contractual arrangement) and Total costs (Modular Total Direct plus 
Facilities and Administrative (F&A) Costs) for the initial budget period.
