The NIH realizes that there may be problems for organizations in submitting grant applications due to Hurricane Ike. The usual NIH practice for such circumstances will apply. Electronic and paper applications that are submitted late due to weather problems should include a cover letter noting the reasons for the delay. It is not necessary to get permission in advance for weather-related delays in grant application submissions. It is expected that the delay will generally not exceed the time period that an applicant organization/institution is closed.
NIH has recently established a Web page on the NIH Extramural Response to Natural Disasters that provides information on a variety of topics: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/natural_disasters.htm.
