Shutdown central

The Office of Management and Budget has posted federal agency contingency plans for the shutdown in a single list.

Specific information for grantees of the National Institutes of Health.  It states, "The safest course is to wait to submit any application to NIH until after operations resume and a Notice in the NIH Guide concerning adjusted submission dates is posted."

The National Science Foundation says FastLane will be unavailable, and proposals submitted through will not be downloaded. "Awardees may continue performance under their NSF awards during the shutdown, to the extent funds are available, and the term of the grant or cooperative agreement has not expired," the agency states on this website.
