NIH Grants Policy Statement
Revised October 2017. This document applies to all NIH grants and cooperative agreements for budget periods beginning on or after October 1, 2017.

5.4 Budget

Each NoA sets forth the amount of funds awarded. The amount may be shown either as a categorical (line item) budget or as an amount for total direct costs (not broken down by category) and an amount for F&A costs, if applicable. Modular awards represent a type of award made without a categorical budget (see Modular Applications and Awards chapter in IIB). The recipient has certain rebudgeting flexibility within the overall amount awarded (see Administrative Requirements-Changes in Project and Budget). The recipient may be required to provide matching funds under construction awards as specified in Construction Grants-Matching in IIB as well as under other NIH programs or awards if specified in the funding opportunity announcement.
