The NIH Operates under a Continuing Resolution

Notice Number: NOT-OD-12-004

Key Dates
Release Date: October 7, 2011

Issued by
National Institutes of Health (NIH)


The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) including the NIH operates under a Continuing Resolution (CR) that was enacted on October 4, 2011.  The CR continues government operations through November 18, 2011 at the FY 2011 level minus 1.5 percent.

Until FY 2012 appropriations are 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 - 2011. Upward adjustments to awarded levels will be considered after our FY 2012 appropriations are enacted but NIH 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.
