National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders

The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication
Disorders (NIDCD) will continue to support selected Program
Announcements (PAs) that it has issued since its formation in 1989,
and will continue to support trans-NIH PAs relevant to the NIDCD
mission in the areas of hearing, balance, smell, taste, voice,
speech, and language. Certain other NIDCD PAs will be terminated. 
This Notice applies to application receipt deadlines of October
1997 and thereafter.

All applications will continue to be assigned on the basis of
established Public Health Service guidelines.  The NIDCD will also
inform the scientific community of changes in NIDCD areas of
research interest through the NIDCD Home Page.

CONTINUATIONS.  NIDCD will continue to accept applications in
response to the PAs listed below.  Applicants should continue to
enter the number and title of the active PA in item 2 on the face
page of the grant application form PHS 398.

The title and number of each NIDCD PA published in the NIH Guide
for Grants and Contracts are shown.  Those PAs issued in 1992 and
thereafter can be viewed and printed from the NIDCD Home Page;
printed copies of earlier PAs can be obtained from the individual
listed in the INQUIRIES section of this Notice.
