Dear Colleagues,

Some federal agencies (e.g., NSF and partially NIH) released guidelines addressing the impact of COVID-19 on grant proposal deadlines and interruptions of research activities based on the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) memorandum entitled M-20-17 Administrative Relief for Recipients and Applicants of Federal Financial Assistance Directly Impacted by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) due to Loss of Operations (PDF).
We summarized some key topics for your information. Agencies’ information is continuously changing due to the rapidly changing impact of COVID-19. We will continue making updates to our information and ask you to please check our website regularly.
Please send questions to
Best wishes,
