federal funding. Modification in the number of and/or funding for individual proposals may be made
based on final program budget allocations. This competition is composed of two components: the
Letter of Intent (LOI) and the Full Project Proposal. Each full proposal for this competitive grant
receives extensive out-of-state peer review, with final evaluation conducted by an ad hoc panel of
external technical experts and relevancy review panelists.
