Delays in Grant Application Submission due to Floods – June 2008

Notice Number: NOT-OD-08-080

Key Dates
Release Date:  June 13, 2008

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 floods.  The usual NIH practice for such circumstances will apply.  Electronic and paper applications that are submitted late because of the floods should include a cover letter noting the reasons for the delay.  It is not necessary to get permission in advance for flood-related delays in grant application submissions. It is expected that the delay will generally not exceed the time period that an applicant organization/institution is closed.
