Delays in Grant Application Submission due to Winter Storms – December 2006

Notice Number: NOT-OD-07-031

Key Dates
Release Date: December 21, 2006

Issued by
National Institutes of Health (NIH), (

The NIH realizes that there will be problems for organizations across a wide geographic area in submitting grant applications due to the major winter storm in Colorado and adjacent states.  The usual NIH practice for such circumstances will apply.  Paper and electronic applications that are submitted late because of the winter storm should include a cover letter noting the reasons for the delay.  It is not necessary to get permission in advance for storm-related delays in grant application submissions. It is expected that the delay will generally not exceed the time period that an institution is closed.
