This Notice provides additional clarification to the guidance on resumption of NIH extramural activities following the recent lapse in appropriations (NOT-OD-14-007).

  • All standard due dates in October have been rescheduled for November. The R21/R33 activity code was inadvertently missed in prior guidance. New R21/R33 applications originally due on October 16, 2013 are now due on November 18, 2013.
  • The statement 'Make the refreshed application a "new", "resubmission" or "renewal" to match the withdrawn application.' should have also included "revision".
  • Applicants should designate 'Changed/Corrected Application' as the Type of Submission on the SF424 R&R cover form of their refreshed applications.
We continue to expand our FAQs and web page of consolidated information as we encounter additional questions from applicants.
