Financial Management Plan

Here NIAID sets fiscal year (FY) 2024 funding levels for grants, renewal cap, and selective pay and bridge pools. We update this page and the NIAID Paylines every FY.

Our most recent update was on October 18, 2023: We posted the sections below on competing awards, noncompeting awards, supplements, cofunding, and set-aside funds. NIH is operating under a continuing resolution through March 8, 2024.

Competing Awards

  • Competing investigator-initiated awards will be funded at 90 percent of approved funding level with start dates reset by one month. This excludes fellowship (F), training (T), career development (K), and small business (SBIR/STTR) awards, and awards funded with non-direct appropriations (e.g., emergency supplemental COVID appropriations), which will be funded with no reduction to the approved funding level.
  • Multiyear awards will be funded at 90 percent of approved funding level for all years.
  • Funds available for each extramural division’s solicited portfolio will be reduced by 30 percent overall. This may involve a reduction in the number of awards or a reduction in the award amount for any notice of funding opportunity (NOFO).
  • Upward adjustments to awarded levels will be considered after FY 2024 appropriations are enacted.
  • Renewal budgets for R01s are capped at 20 percent over the direct costs of the last noncompeting award, not including equipment or alterations and renovations costs. For a competing R01 renewal grant, NIAID will fund at 90 percent of approved funding level after applying the renewal budget cap.
  • No inflationary increases are provided in calculating future years' commitments.
  • Salaries are limited to the levels published on Salary Cap, Stipends, & Training Funds.

Noncompeting Awards

  • Noncompeting (Type 5, Type 8) continuation awards will be funded at 90 percent of the FY 2024 committed level. This excludes Fs, Ts, Ks, SBIRs/STTRs, and awards funded with non-direct appropriations (e.g., emergency supplemental COVID appropriations).
  • Extensions (Type 4) will be funded at 90 percent of the anticipated FY 2024 level. This excludes Ks (R00) and SBIR/STTRs, which will be funded with no reduction to the anticipated FY 2024 level.
  • Upward adjustments to awarded levels will be considered after FY 2024 appropriations are enacted.
  • Salaries are limited to the levels published on Salary Cap, Stipends, & Training Funds.

Supplements

  • New supplements will be funded in accordance with available discretionary funds from each extramural division.
  • Continuing supplements will be fully funded at the FY 2024 committed level for the following: Diversity, Re-entry, Continuity, Primary Caregiver (PCTAS), Childcare, Business Commercialization (TABA), and Ending the HIV Epidemic (EHE).
  • All other continuing supplements will be funded at 90 percent of the FY 2024 committed level.

Cofunding

  • All cofunding received from other NIH institutes, centers, and offices (ICOs) will be awarded in accordance with this NIAID Financial Management Plan.

Set-Aside Funds

  • Selective pay
    • We are reducing the overall amount available to each extramural program division by 10 percent.
    • Adjustments to the set-aside will be considered after FY 2024 appropriations are enacted.
    • Note: Investigators cannot apply for selective pay funding. NIAID’s main Advisory Council ranks applications recommended by Institute program staff.
  • R56-Bridge awards
    • We are reducing the overall amount available to each extramural program division by 10 percent.
    • Adjustments to the set-aside will be considered after FY 2024 appropriations are enacted.
    • Note: Investigators cannot apply for R56-Bridge awards but must be nominated by a NIAID program officer.

We will post additional financial management plan information as it becomes available.
