Impact on Existing Deadlines

During a lapse in appropriations, NSF will continue to accept proposal submissions pursuant to existing deadlines.

Issuance of New Grants and Cooperative Agreements

No new grants or cooperative agreements will be awarded.

Issuance of Continuing Grant Increments (CGIs)

No new CGIs will be awarded.

No-Cost Extensions

FastLane will be available to submit both grantee-approved and NSF-approved no cost extensions (NCEs).

Grantee-approved NCEs do not require NSF approval; therefore, assuming all business rule checks have passed, the NCE would be processed automatically and the award date would be extended.

NSF-approved NCEs will not be processed until normal operations resume. Awardees, therefore, are cautioned that Federal funds cannot be obligated for expenses that occur beyond the award end date.
