Federal Shutdown Postpones NIH Activities
Please find below a note from NIH about the impact of a shutdown on NIH grantees. The short answer is: drawdown of obligated funds will be possible during shutdown and while applications will be accepted, grants.gov will only accept and store them. They will not be processed until normal business operations are restored. Support from NIH admin or program staff will not be available until that time as well.
The Government Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 ended on September 30, 2013 at midnight EST and an Appropriation Act for FY2014 has not been passed leading to a lapse in Federal funding. We are providing the following information to answer questions you may have on the impact this lapse in appropriation will have on your grant/cooperative agreement or the availability of NIH’s systems and services.
