Any Funding Opportunity Announcements not specifically mentioned above with a due date between February 13 and February 18, 2015 will also be due February 19, 2015.

Grants.gov is taking this extended outage to deploy their Release 14.0. Among the changes they plan to deploy is support for the full Unicode character set in the free-form text fields (e.g., Project Title, name, organization name) of their application forms. NIH implemented similar support in May 2014 (NOT-OD-14-071). Following Grants.gov's deployment, both Grants.gov and NIH will support the expanded characters in both free-form text fields and within PDF attachments. See
