Delays in Grant Application Submission due to Hurricane Earl

Notice Number: NOT-OD-10-133

Key Dates
Release Date:  September 2, 2010

Issued by
National Institutes of Health (NIH)

The NIH realizes that the path of Hurricane Earl may cause problems in grant application submission for organizations located over a wide portion of the east coast. The usual NIH practice for such circumstances will apply. Electronic and paper applications submitted late because weather problems must 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. The delay should not exceed the time period that an applicant organization/institution is closed.

NIH has established a Web page on the NIH Extramural Response to Natural Disasters that provides information on a variety of topics: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/natural_disasters.htm.
