Be sure to succinctly address and answer all questions listed under the narrative and place them under the evaluation criteria (refer to Section V.1, Evaluation criteria in this announcement) and place all responses and required information in the correct section (noted below), or they shall not be considered or scored. These narratives will assist the Objective Review Committee (ORC) in becoming familiar with the applicant's activities and accomplishments prior to this grant award. If the narrative exceeds the page limit, only the first 32 pages will be reviewed. The 32-page limit for the narrative does not include the table of contents, abstract, standard forms, budget justification narrative, and/or other appendix items”.

Application Review Information”, the correct paragraph should read as “The instructions for preparing the application narrative also constitute the evaluation criteria for reviewing and scoring the application. Weights assigned to each section are noted in parentheses. The 32 page narrative should include only the first year activities; information for multi-year projects should be included as an appendix. See “Multi-year Project Requirements” at the end of this section for more information.
