Research projects were first coded to NLM in fiscal year 2007. The RL5 activity was formerly classified as a Research Project Grant but was reclassified as Other Research in fiscal year 2015. The P42 activity was formerly classified as a Research Project Grant but was reclassified as Research Centers in fiscal year 2017. Not all of these activities may be in use by NIH every year.

Targeted Research is research funded as a result of an Institute's set aside of dollars for a specific scientific area. Institutes solicit applications using research initiatives (RFAs for grants, RFPs for contracts).
