RELEASE DATE:  November 27, 2002

National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) 
announces a subset of active program announcements (PAs) that are of 
sufficiently high priority to warrant a set-aside of NIDDK "Special Emphasis" 
funds.  Responsive applications within the Institute's general payline will 
all be paid with regular research project grant (RPG) funds.  In addition, 
special funds have been set aside to support applications that are responsive 
to these PAs, but have received scores beyond the general payline.  These 
funds are separate from those for Requests for Applications and other 
initiatives.  In addition to the criterion for responsiveness, applications 
must be of sufficiently high merit and program relevance to warrant funding 
beyond the announced payline. 

Specific PAs on the Special Emphasis list will change over time, along with 
the NIDDK's funding priorities.  Therefore, it is important that potential 
applicants refer to the following web site for the most current list of the 
PAs in this special category:
The list of all active NIDDK PAs is located at:
