The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) continues to operate on a continuing resolution (CR) as specified in Public Law 111-242, which was signed by the President on September 30, 2010. The CR continues government operations at 2010 enacted levels through December 3, 2010.

Until the final FY 2011 appropriation is enacted, NIH will issue non-competing research grant awards at a level below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (generally up to 90% of the previously committed level). This is consistent with our practice during the CRs of FY 2006 - 2010. NIH will consider upward adjustments to these levels after the final appropriation is enacted, but expects institutions to monitor their expenditures carefully during this period.


Questions regarding adjustments applied to individual grant awards may be directed to the Grants Management Specialist identified on the Notice of Award.
