National Institutes of Health (NIH), (

Hurricane Frances has caused widespread damage in Florida and other states. The NIH realizes that this may lead to problems for investigators who are planning on submitting grant applications. Applications that are submitted late because of Hurricane Frances should include a cover letter noting the reasons for the delay. It is not necessary to get permission in advance for hurricane-related delays in grant application submissions. It is expected that the delay will generally not exceed the time period that an institution is closed.
