Notice about Federal Government shutdown
Due to the current Federal Government shutdown, some Federal funding agencies have suspended work related to their proposal submissions and grant funding.  As a result, we are not able to provide information about upcoming federal funding opportunities from these agencies (i.e. NSF). Please review the information below regarding any federal agencies that you may have plans to submit a proposal to or that you have current funding from to learn how this will impact you.

National Science Foundation (NSF):
FastLane is now shut down, but proposals may still be submitted through grants.gov via Cayuse424. NSF will review the effect of the shutdown on its deadlines following the return of its staff. Information about the NSF contingency plan and other details can be found within the NSF's Plan for Operations During a Funding Hiatus<http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/omb/contingencyplans/2013/nsf-shutdown2013.pdf>.  



National Institutes of Health (NIH):
NIH notes that eCommons is shut down and requests that no proposals be submitted during the government shutdown. The agency will revise due dates following the return of its staff. The Information for the NIH Extramural Grantee Community During the Lapse of Federal Government Funding<http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-13-126.html> document includes information regarding awarded projects and how they should proceed during the funding lapse, information about progress reports, NOAs, extensions, etc. Investigators with currently funded NIH projects are strongly encouraged to read the notification in full.
