NIAMS FY 2023 Enacted Level: $685,465,000
NIAMS is operating under the FY 2023 Consolidated Appropriations Act signed by President Biden on December 29, 2022. The interim funding plan below for research and training grants represents the most current information as of the date cited above; however, many factors occurring throughout the fiscal year can affect the operating policies, thus they are subject to change. For clarification it is always best to check with an appropriate Institute official.
Noncompeting continuation awards will be funded at the recommended level for FY 2023 that is reflected on the FY 2022 Notice of Grant Award.

- A pool of funds has been set aside for select payment. Applications chosen for select pay are those that do not fall within the current percentile payline, but which are deemed to have particular relevance to the Institute's scientific and health priorities. Applicants may not apply for select pay consideration and should not request consideration. Final decisions are made by the Director, NIAMS, following staff discussion.
- Rarely, NIAMS receives an application that is within the Institute's payline but is deemed to be of low program priority. In such instances, these cases are discussed in depth with members of the Council before the Institute Director makes a final funding decision. An application can be considered low priority for many reasons, including (but not limited to) redundancy with other projects, concerns about the ultimate relevance of the proposed study's results, or a lack of scientific premise.
- The payline for SBIR applications will be paid through the priority score 30.
