No, all progress made on applications started before the migration will be saved.
What happens to applications that were in process before the migration, but had not yet been submitted?
The progress of all unsubmitted applications that are in process at the start of the migration will be saved. Once Grants.gov comes back online, all applications and their progress will be exactly as they were before the migration started.
