This notice is to alert the extramural community that, as of the September 2020 NANDS Council round, NINDS will no longer apply administrative reductions to modular investigator-initiated R01 grants. However, non-modular R01 awards will continue to receive a 17.5% administrative reduction applied to IRG and NANDS Council budget recommendations (see NINDS Funding Strategy). Investigators and recipient organizations should carefully consider this NIH guidance when developing budgets for R01 submissions (see Develop Your Budget). In accordance with the NIA Funding Strategy for AD/ADRD research, NINDS will continue to award the level of support recommended by the study section for applications funded through the Alzheimer's allocation, with adjustments deemed appropriate by NIH staff.
