Special Exception to the NIH/AHRQ/NIOSH Post-Submission Material Policy During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The NIH, AHRQ, and NIOSH understand that the emergency declaration related to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) will adversely affect the ability of many applicants to generate preliminary data in time for their grant applications submitted for the current due dates (for January 2021 Council beginning with applications submitted for the May 25, 2020, due date). However, with the implementation of the President’s Guidelines for Re-Opening America Again, NIH, AHRQ, and NIOSH anticipate that many investigators may be able to generate preliminary data for those applications before peer review. Therefore, this Notice provides an exception to the NIH/AHRQ/NIOSH Policy for post-submission materials (NOT-OD-19-083).
