Agency for Health Care Policy and Research

The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) is inactivating two
Program Announcements: 1)  PA-94-066 on Medical Treatment Effectiveness
Research - PORT-II published on May 13, 1994 and 2)  PA-93-110 on Health Care
Services for Persons with HIV Infection published on September 17, 1993. 
AHCPR will not give special consideration for funding to applications in
response to these PAs received after June 1, 1999.

AHCPR supports highly scientifically meritorious applications in all areas of
research within its mission, including the scientific areas delineated in
these PAs.  PA inactivation simply means that special consideration for
funding beyond normal paylines will NO LONGER be given to applications on the
research topics identified in the inactivated PAs.  However, such applications
will be accepted, reviewed, and considered for funding with all other
investigator-initiated applications.  

At any time, potential applications can obtain a current listing of active
AHCPR PAs on the AHCPR web site at URL:  (Funding
