The National Science Foundation (NSF) is emerging from a 16-day funding lapse that severely limited our ability to conduct our mission to advance the progress of science and engineering.
Visit their website for guidance regarding the resumption of operations at NSF following the shutdown. General shutdown questions should be directed to the Policy Office in the Division of Institution & Award Support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To NCI staff, grantees, advisors, reviewers and others:
I am writing to keep you abreast of the ways in which the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and its extramural and intramural research programs have been --- and are likely to be --- affected by the current shutdown of the federal government. And I am also writing to ask for your help in responding to the difficult situation that we are likely to face when the government is reopened.
The NIH continues to be shut down for all non-excepted activities. This means that the vast majority of NIH staff that oversee program, review, and grants management are furloughed, NIH grants and contract submissions are not being processed, reviews are not occurring, and no awards are being made. As described in NOT-OD-13-126, the Payment Management Systems remains operational and funds for most grants awarded before the shutdown can continue to be drawn down.
Although an Appropriation Act has not been passed, awardees of active CDC grants and cooperative agreements should continue with their planned grant- related activities. However, due to federal furloughs, certain grant-related administrative functions and tasks must be suspended or modified for most, but not all, CDC grants and cooperative agreements. The following guidance provides the most up to date information regarding the administrative management of most CDC grants and cooperative agreements.
Your particular grant program is funded by appropriations that are not affected by the government shutdown. As a result, a minimal number of FDA grants staff will be available to provide routine administrative support services
Your particular grant program is funded by appropriations that are not affected by the government shutdown at least for the first quarter of FY2014. As a result, a minimal number of federal staff supporting the grant programs will be available to provide routine administrative support services.
For the duration of the funding lapse, applicants are strongly encouraged not to submit paper or electronic grant applications to NIH during the period of the lapse. Adjustments to application submission dates that occur during the funding lapse will be announced once operations resume. For any applications submitted immediately prior to or during the funding lapse, here is what will happen.
Consistent with the Department of Justice Contingency Plan (http://www.justice.gov/jmd/publications/doj-contingency-plan.pdf), a determination has been made that the Office of Justice Programs (OJP) has sufficient resources to remain operational through Friday, October 4, 2013
EPA staff will not be available to make or approve payments to you during the shutdown period. This means that if you are a "high-risk" or other recipient paid on a reimbursement basis, you will not receive payments during the shutdown period.
Consistent with the Department of Justice (DOJ) Contingency Plan (http://www.justice.gov/jmd/publications/doj-contingency-plan.pdf), a determination has been made that the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) has sufficient resources to remain operational through Monday, October 7, 2013.
As of October 1, 2013, there are no longer appropriations for Federal Agencies, including NASA. As a result, all NASA installations are forced to shut down with limited exemptions for specifically excepted activities.
Should a lapse in federal appropriations occur on October 1, 2013, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), a bureau of the U.S. Department of Commerce, will limit operations.
Should a lapse in funding occur, HHS’ Administration for Community Living staff will not be available to provide routine administrative support services. HHS will, however, maintain the Payment Management System in an operational status to continue processing grant drawdown requests, so that payments can be made for excepted programs.
Your particular grant program is funded by appropriations that are not currently affected by the government shutdown, therefore you should continue normal operations until informed otherwise by this office. A minimal number of federal staff will be available to provide routine administrative support services.
Your particular grant program is funded by appropriations that will be affected by a government shutdown. As a result, if there is a lapse in funding, HHS’ NIH staff will not be available to provide routine administrative support services.
The National Science Foundation released guidance for grantees about contract-related issues and systems issues that may arise in the event of a government shutdown, with the following letter.
