Recovery Act Grand Opportunities “GO” Grant Submission Deadline Moved to May 29, 2009
Notice Number: NOT-OD-09-090
The submission deadline for RFA-OD-09-004, Recovery Act Limited Competition for NIH Grants: Research and Research Infrastructure “Grand Opportunities” (RC2), has been moved from May 27 to May 29, 2009. The opening date for this Funding Opportunity Announcement will be April 29, 2009.
This change is due to the close proximity of this receipt date to an eRA Commons system upgrade to take place from May 22-26. During the system upgrade, applicants will not be able to see application images, view errors/warning, or access any other feature of Commons. Although eRA systems, including Commons, will be unavailable during this time, Grants.gov will be able to accept applications. Applicants submitting through Grants.gov during May 22 -26 will need to complete their submission through eRA Commons once it is available for use on May 27.
Applicants that submit on-time (i.e., by 5:00 p.m. local time on May 29) and receive a Grants.gov tracking number can correct their system identified errors and warnings in the two business days following May 29. Applicants must complete the submission process within this window for further consideration.
NIH will continue to provide updates as needed.
