Notice Number: NOT-OD-15-066
Release Date: February 10, 2015
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
The NIH realizes that multiple winter storms may cause problems in grant application submission for organizations located over a wide portion of the east coast and other regions of the country. The usual NIH practice for such circumstances will apply. Applications submitted late because of weather problems must include a cover letter noting the reasons for the delay. It is not necessary to get permission in advance for weather-related delays in grant application submissions. The delay should not exceed the time period that an applicant organization/institution is closed.
NIH has established a web page about the NIH Extramural Response to Natural Disasters that provides information on a variety of topics: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/natural_disasters.htm.
