Delays in Grant Application Submission due to Spring Flooding

Notice Number: NOT-OD-06-070

Key Dates
Release Date: May 15, 2006

Issued by
National Institutes of Health (NIH), (

The NIH realizes that a number of institutions are closing or having difficulty maintaining normal operations because of the recent flooding in New England . The usual NIH practice for such extraordinary circumstances will apply. Applications that are submitted late (either in paper or electronic mode) because of flooding problems 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 submissions. It is expected that the delay will generally not exceed the time period that an institution is closed.
