Key Dates
Release Date: July 27, 2007

Issued by
National Institute on Aging (NIA), (

The National Institute on Aging (NIA) is modifying the NIA policy limiting costs on Program Project (P01) applications (See: To continue to fund a diverse research portfolio that fulfills the mandate of the National Institute on Aging (NIA), NIA will accept for review and funding consideration only new (Type 1) and competing continuation (Type 2) P01 applications with requested costs 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 reflect NIH policy in effect for the year of the non-competing continuation and may be requested to reflect an anticipated inflationary 3% annual increase only.

This policy becomes effective with applications submitted for the January 25, 2008 receipt date. Exceptions to this cap will rarely be allowed and only after approval by the NIA-wide Planning Group prior to its submission. As with all applications requiring more than $500,000 these requests should be submitted to NIA at least 6 weeks prior to the intended submission date (NOT-OD-02-004).
