Major Changes in Budget Request

Fiscal Year 2015 Budget

Major changes by budget mechanism and/or budget activity detail are briefly described below. Note that these highlights will not sum to the total change for the FY 2015 President’s Budget for NIEHS, which is $0.556 million above the FY 2014 Enacted level, for a total of $665.080 million.

Research Project Grants (RPGs) (-$4.437 million; total $246.263 million):
NIEHS plans to support a total of 641 RPG awards in FY 2015. Noncompeting RPGs will decrease by 27 awards and $5.383 million from the FY 2014 Enacted level. This is primarily due to the completion of seven Requests for Applications (RFAs). Competing RPGs will increase by three awards and $0.946 million. NIEHS will continue to support new investigators in FY 2015.

Exposure Research (-$2.686 million; total $50.325 million):
The decrease in this program is due to the completion of RFA ES-09-011, Engineered Nanomaterials: Linking Physical and Chemical Properties to Biology.
