The NIA announced last week  in NOT-AG-20-033 that they were extending upcoming deadlines for proposals with May, June & July deadlines.   As illustrated by the table included in the notice, both New and Renewal/Resubmission/Revision applications are included.   The notice states that applications will be accepted by 5:00 PM local time up to two weeks after the application due date for the NIA-specific FOAs listed.  As there was some ambiguity to the way the notice was written, a phone call to the contact listed cleared up some questions.

  1. Two weeks = 14 days.  If the 14th day falls on a weekend, the proposal is due the next business day.
  2. This deadline is inclusive of everyone applying for the grant, including those who are typically receive additional time such as council members, reviewers, etc.
  3. In some cases the New and Renewal/Resubmission/Revision date is the same day.  This will carry forward for the two week extension.
  4. NIH’s late application submission policy for institutions closed due to the effects of COVID-19 (NOT-OD-20-082) still applies to these FOAs for institutions that are not able to submit within the two-week window.  However, note that late applications submitted per NOT-OD-20-082 are considered on a case-by-case basis.
