As you may be aware, a partial government shutdown has continued into the new year. We would like to assure you that despite the status of our funding agencies, your work on awards and administration will continue as usual. If your research does not access agency locations, resources, data, personnel, or additional funding, the work should continue as long as you have available award funding. In addition, technical and financial reports should still be submitted by the posted deadlines unless an agency portal is not accessible.
Proposal deadlines are still in effect, and grants.gov will accept submissions; these will be forwarded to the sponsor once the shutdown has ceased. Please note that technical support will likely not be available for many federal websites.More information about agency contingency plans and FAQs can be found on the Office of Management and Budget site.
