Notice Number: NOT-OD-10-060
Release Date: February 5, 2010
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 blizzard on the east coast. The usual NIH practice for such circumstances will apply. Electronic and paper applications submitted late because weather problems must 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. The delay should not exceed the time period that an applicant organization/institution is closed.
Because of the planned shutdown of Grants.gov from February 6 through 9, February 10 will be the first opportunity for electronic applications for institutions closed due to the storm.
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.
