Delays in Grant Application Submission due to Winter Ice Storms January 2009

Notice Number: NOT-OD-09-042

Key Dates
Release Date:  January 28, 2009

Issued by
National Institutes of Health (NIH), (http://www.nih.gov)

The NIH realizes that there may be problems for organizations in submitting grant applications due to the recent winter ice storm that has swept across the country.  The usual NIH practice for such circumstances will apply.  Electronic and paper applications that are submitted late because of weather problems should include a cover letter noting the reasons for the delay.  It is not necessary to get permission in advance for weather-related delays in grant application submissions.  It is expected that the delay will generally not exceed the time period that an applicant organization/institution is closed.

NIH has established a Web page on the NIH Extramural Response to Natural Disasters that provides information on a variety of topics:   http://grants.nih.gov/grants/natural_disasters.htm.
