Notice Number: NOT-OD-07-046

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.  The usual NIH practice for such circumstances will apply.  Paper and electronic applications that are submitted late because of the 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.
