What if I am unable to submit my grant on time due to COVID-19?

Most federal agencies, including NIH and NSF, do not grant prior approval for late submissions; however, there are existing policies that address extenuating circumstances and the NIH published a memo on March 9, 2020 relating to late applications, as well as an FAQ memo. Current guidance can be found in NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-15-039 and NOT-OD-20-086 and NSF’s Special Exceptions to NSF’s Deadline Date Policy (PAPPG 19-1). We strongly encourage you to discuss your specific situation with both your agency Program Official and your OSR Officer or RMG RPM.
