The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, Office of Extramural Programs realizes that the path of Hurricane Sandy may cause problems in grant application submission for organizations located over a wide portion of the east coast. The usual NIOSH/OEP practices for such circumstances are that applications submitted late because of weather-related 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. Generally, the delay should not exceed the time period that an applicant organization/institution is closed. However, due to the extent of the storm damage, NIOSH has extended the receipt date from November 30 to December 14, 2012.
