To facilitate a major technical upgrade to Grants.gov, the web system will undergo downtime from September 23 to September 29, 2022. In response, all NIH grant application due dates that fall on or between September 22 and September 30 will shift to October 3, 2022.
As noted in Adjustments to NIH and AHRQ Grant Application Due Dates Between September 22 and September 30, 2022, several procedures are dependent on an applicant’s intended receipt date and will be treated as follows:
- Continuous Submission—Eligible applications for the September 7, 2022 AIDS application due date may be submitted until October 3, 2022.
- Late Applications—The two-week window of consideration will be calculated based on the original due date.
- Viewing Window—The two-day period in which applicants can review a submitted application in eRA Commons will function as usual, beginning upon submission.
- FOA Expiration—For any FOA with a final due date and subsequent expiration date in the impacted period, Grants.gov will allow a grace period for submission even though the FOA will appear to have expired.
Remember, you are not required to apply after the scheduled downtime; consider submitting before September 22 if your targeted receipt date lands within the week of scheduled Grants.gov maintenance.
