Delays in Grant Application Submission Due to Fires in California

Notice Number: NOT-OD-08-009

Key Dates
Release Date:  October 22, 2007

Issued by
National Institutes of Health (NIH), (

The NIH realizes that there will be problems for organizations in submitting grant applications due to the wildfires in California and subsequent closures/evacuations.  The usual NIH practice for such circumstances will apply.  Paper and electronic applications that are submitted late because of the wildfires should include a cover letter noting the reasons for the delay.  It is not necessary to get permission in advance for fire-related delays in grant application submissions. It is expected that the delay will generally not exceed the time period that an institution is closed or an evacuation order is imposed.
