NOTICE:  NOT-OD-01-041

National Institutes of Health

Some institutions in Texas and Louisiana have had significant damage 
due to Tropical Storm Allison.  The NIH realizes that this may cause 
problems for investigators who are planning to submit grant 
applications (both competing and non-competing) for the July 1 receipt 
date.  Applications that are submitted late because of Tropical Storm 
Allison 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 submission.  

In addition, Principal Investigators and Program Officials who have 
experienced damage or losses to their research are encouraged to 
contact their Program Official about these losses.  

NIH will publish a follow-up announcement on resources available to NIH 
grantees and contractors.  (See NOT-OD-01-045)
