NIDCR FY 2018 Interim Funding Policy

NIDCR is currently operating under a Continuing Resolution (CR) that continues government operations through March 23, 2018. NIDCR’s interim funding policy for research and training grants is cited below:

In accordance with established NIH policy, NIDCR will issue non-competing research grant awards at a level below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (generally up to 90%) of the previously committed level ( Upward adjustments to awarded levels will be considered after FY 2018 appropriations are enacted, but NIH expects institutions to monitor their expenditures carefully during this period.

The NIDCR will continue to provide individual consideration to all competing applications. For all competing R01 applications selected for funding, the NIDCR will reduce applications by 5 percent below the peer review recommended level of support. There is no fixed payline for R01 applications. NIDCR will consider scientific merit, program priorities, portfolio balance, and availability of funds in making funding decisions.


This funding policy will be updated once the FY 2018 appropriations are enacted.
