*These numbers may change slightly due to false negative/positive codes on AD applications. Data from January 2021 Council are shown italicized in parentheses. January 2022 data were run on 1/14/2022, and January 2021 data were run on 12/23/2020. Applications that had been withdrawn and contracts were not included. Dollar amounts shown are the first-year total costs requested (AD application information was generated from a database that does not display direct costs). See Grant Types and Award Mechanisms for definition of NIA grant types and award mechanisms.

*Data for each Council were run prior to that Council's meeting: May 2021 on 4/29/2021, October 2021 on 8/31/2021, and January 2022 on 1/4/2022. 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.
