Announcement: The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has recently updated their Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Information for NIH Applicants and Recipients website with a number of additional FAQs, new funding opportunities, as well as a video message addressing some of the most common questions.
Since the recording of the video, in response to community concerns about their ability to submit applications in a timely manner, NIH has also published a notice announcing that grant applications submitted late for due dates between March 9, 2020, and May 1, 2020, will be accepted through May 1, 2020. This notice applies to all relevant funding opportunity announcements, including those that indicate no late applications will be accepted. A cover letter providing a justification is not required. NIH will be extending the expiration date of most FOAs expiring between now and May 1. Be sure to read the notice carefully for details.
You are encouraged to monitor the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): Information for NIH Applicants and Recipients website. To help you identify updated content, the page now includes a link to page update history so you can easily see what’s new.
