The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine

The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine 
(NCCAM) announces a change in the guidelines related to the 
application receipt dates for the CAM Education Project Grant (R25) 
program.  The Program Announcement (PAR-00-027) appeared in the NIH 
Guide for Grants and Contracts and can be accessed at the following 

As issued, the Program Announcement stated that applications would be 
accepted at the standard application deadlines as indicated in the 
Form PHS 398 instructions (February 1, June 1, and October 1 for new 
applications; March 1, July 1, and November 1 for revised 
applications).  In order to provide the highest quality of peer 
review, and in order to ensure that the fairest and most consistent 
funding decisions are made within each fiscal year, the NCCAM has 
determined that a single application receipt date will be used for 
each fiscal year.  

Effective immediately, R25 applications submitted to the NCCAM in 
response to PAR-00-027 will be accepted only for the October 1, 2001 
and October 1, 2002 receipt dates (November 1, 2001 and November 1, 
2002 for revised applications) with applications assigned to May 2002 
and 2003 Councils for funding decisions, respectively.
