*These numbers may change slightly due to false negative/positive codes on AD applications. Data from Fiscal Year 2019 are shown italicized in parentheses. October 2019 data were run on 8/12/2019, January 2020 on 1/3/2020, May 2020 on 4/7/2020, and August 2020 on 8/11/2020. Applications that had been withdrawn and contracts were not included. Dollar amounts shown are the first-year total costs requested for October Council and first-year direct costs requested for January, May, and August Councils (AD application information for October Councils is generated from a database that does not display direct costs).

*Data for each Council were run prior to that Council's meeting: January 2020 on 12/23/2019, May 2020 on 4/16/2020, and October 2020 on 8/21/2020. Only applications that are normally percentiled were included. As applications in response to RFAs, and a few other applications, are not normally percentiled, the number of applications in Table 2 is usually less than the corresponding number of RPG applications in Table 1A.
