Government Shutdown, October, 2013
NIH is encouraging institutions to not submit paper or electronic grant
applications during the period of lapse. They have indicated that
adjustments to application submission dates that occur during this
period will be announced once operations resume.
eRA Commons is unavailable at this time, as is NSF FastLane and
While we will comply with recommendations to not submit proposals during
the lapse period, we do encourage all faculty to continue the
development of their applications, so that they are ready for submission
when normal operations resume.
Grants.gov will continue to operate, but with limited capacity – help
desks and administrative support activities will be significantly
reduced. In addition, many agency back-end systems may not be functional
during a lapse period. Therefore, grants that are submitted may not be
retrieved by the agency until operations return to normal.
