Delays in Grant Application Submission Due to Hurricane Rita

Notice Number: NOT-OD-05-079

Key Dates
Release Date: September 20, 2005

Issued by
National Institutes of Health (NIH), (

The NIH realizes that a number of institutions are closing and evacuation orders are being issued for a number of states because of the progress of Hurricane Rita. The usual NIH practice for such extraordinary circumstances will apply. Applications that are submitted late because of Hurricane Rita should include a cover letter noting the reasons for the delay. It is not necessary to get permission in advance for hurricane-related delays in grant application submissions. It is expected that the delay will generally not exceed the time period that an institution is closed/evacuation order imposed.
