NIH considers acceptance of late applications on a case-by-case basis. Although we cannot guarantee acceptance of a given late application before it is submitted, NIH is taking a very flexible stance for applications submitted within the standard two-week late policy. Include a Cover Letter with an explanation for the late submission so that NIH staff can document the delay.

Refer to the March 10, 2020 and March 26, 2020 Guide notices for additional details.
