APPLICATION FOR CONTINUATION OF A PUBLIC HEALTH SERVICE GRANT 
(PHS 2590) FACE PAGES

Release Date:  February 16, 2000

NOTICE:  OD-00-021

National Institutes of Health

NIH has experienced an unanticipated depleted supply of the form used 
to produce the computer-generated Application for Continuation of a 
Public Health Service Grant (PHS 2590) face page.  As a result, there 
has been a delay in mailing the pre-printed 2590 face pages and mailing 
labels.  A partial mailing of face pages was completed for those 
applications due to NIH on March 1 (for budget periods beginning May 
1).  We have not yet mailed pre-printed 2590 face pages and mailing 
labels for those applications due to NIH on April 1 (for budget periods 
beginning June1).  Grantees with noncompeting applications due to NIH 
in March for award budget periods beginning in May are strongly 
encouraged to complete a blank 2590 face page to submit with your 
applications.  Blank 2590 face pages (Form Page A) are available in PDF 
format from the NIH website at 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/2590/2590.htm.  

To avoid processing delays, applications to continue support of an NIH 
grant must be submitted to the grants management office of the awarding 
NIH Institute or Center two months prior to the budget period start 
date.  A list of mailing addresses for the 2590 application receipt 
points for the NIH Institutes and Centers is located on the NIH website 
at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/type5_mailing_addresses.htm

NIH expects to immediately resume the printing and mailing of face 
pages for those applications due to NIH on April 1.  We sincerely 
apologize for this inconvenience.   Institutions needing assistance in 
identifying applications due to NIH on March 1 may contact the NIH 
Noncompeting Help Desk at 301-435-0896.  Questions concerning specific 
grants should be addressed to the grants management specialist listed 
on your Notice of Grant Award.
