AHRQ realizes that the widespread damage caused by Hurricane/Tropical-Storm Florence and aftermath may lead to problems for investigators who are planning on submitting grant applications and reports. When delays occur because the applicant or recipient organization is officially closed due to a natural disaster or other emergency, AHRQ will consider accepting applications late, on a case-by-case basis. This notice is to inform the research community that AHRQ will implement the following Policy as described below.
AHRQ will provide information (including reporting guidance) to grantees whose research has been affected by the storm, and will proceed with additional NIH Guide Notices once the initial period of emergency has passed.
