  The Agency for Health Care Policy and Research (AHCPR) informs the
  research community that it is currently not using the Modular Grant
  Application and Award.  Applicants for funding from AHCPR should ignore
  application instructions concerning the modular grant application and
  award, and prepare applications according to instructions provided in
  the PHS Grant Application form 398 (revised 4/98).  
  The modular grant application and award are streamlining initiatives
  intended to focus  investigators, their respective institutions, peer
  reviewers, and agency staff on the proposed research rather than on the
  details of budgets.  Prior to instituting these application procedures,
  AHCPR will pilot test the procedures and receive input from AHCPR-
  sponsored investigators, members of peer review groups, and AHCPR staff. 
  AHCPR is studying the potential benefits of modular grant application
  and award and will announce, through a Notice in the NIH Guide, the
  final decision concerning their use.  Ample advance notice will be
  provided prior to implementation of any change in procedure.
  Questions or concerns regarding this notice may be directed to:
