Applications; Human and Animal Protection; News Flashes & Archives; NIH Guide 
for Grants and Contracts; Peer Review Policy and Issues; NIH Reinvention 
Activities; NIH Research Training Opportunities; Small Business Funding

It is expected that this change will become effective as early as Tuesday,

Once the new site is fully operational, all but the re-director pages will be 
deleted from the original site.
