If a grant application due date falls on a federal holiday, the application deadline is automatically extended to the next business day.

We would like to remind the extramural research community that both the NIH and Grants.gov remain operational during the current partial federal government shutdown. https://nexus.od.nih.gov/all/2019/01/07/nih-operational-during-partial-federal-government-shutdown/
 
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.

Additional information can be found at NSF.GOV

For years researchers have used the Matchmaker feature in NIH RePORTER to identify NIH-funded projects similar to their supplied abstracts, research bios, or other scientific text. Matchmaker was recently enhanced to make it just as easy to identify NIH program officials whose portfolios include projects in your research area.

After entering your scientific text (up to 15,000 characters), Matchmaker will analyze the key terms and concepts to identify up to 500 similar projects. Those projects will continue to show on the Projects tab with handy charts to visualize the results and quickly filter identified projects by Institute/Center, Activity Code, and Study Section. A new Program Official tab identifies the program officials associated with the matched projects and includes its own filters for Institute/Center and Activity Code. From the list of program officials you are one click away from their contact information and matched projects in their portfolios. Never before has it been so easy to answer the question “Who at NIH can I talk to about my research?”

 
April 16 to April 20, 2018 The SBIR Road Tour is a national outreach effort to convey the non-dilutive technology funding opportunity provided through the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) and Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) programs. Federal and State Program Managers representing $2.5 billion in early stage funding have been invited to present at a series of events to next generation technology entrepreneurs and innovation supporters from across the United States. This event is a coveted opportunity for those involved in the development of groundbreaking, high-risk technologies, including women-owned and minority-owned firms.

If you’re an innovator, entrepreneur, researcher, or small technology firm, don’t miss this opportunity.

Every SBIR Road Tour stop provides an in-depth understanding of agency technology funding priorities, a review of regional innovation support resources, and one-on-one meetings with high level decision makers.
