Isn't whether you can be PI on a grant determined by your organization?
Last I knew, there was no requirement that the PI have a Ph.D. (or M.D.)
for PHS grants.  However, I know that at many universities you cannot
be PI on a grant unless you have an academic appointment of some kind
(probably much of the reason there are so many people at UCSF with
adjunct or in residence positions).  I have known people at private research
companies/institutions that were PI on PHS grants yet did not have a
Ph.D. or M.D.
