RELEASE DATE:  October 29, 2003

NOTICE:  NOT-OD-04-003

National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The fires in Southern California have led to the closure of a number of 
institutions in the area.  The NIH realizes that this may cause problems for 
investigators from those institutions and their collaborators at other places 
who are planning on submitting grant applications for the November 1, 2003 
date (actually November 3 because of the weekend).  Applications that are 
submitted late because of problems caused by fires should include a cover 
letter noting the reasons for the delay.  It is not necessary to get 
permission in advance for such delays in grant application submission.  It is 
expected that the delay will generally not exceed the time period that an 
institution is closed.
