Due Dates on Holidays/Weekends/NIH Office Closures

With winter weather upon us, remember that when a due date falls on a weekend, Federal holiday, or when Washington, D.C.-area Federal offices close (due to severe weather, for example), the application deadline is automatically extended to the next business day. See NIH Guide Notice NOT-OD-17-041 for additional details. If you suspect Federal offices in D.C. are closed due to severe weather you can check OPM.gov to verify. Only when Federal offices in the Washington, D.C. area are listed as “Operating Status: CLOSED” is the application deadline automatically extended to the next day.

If your local winter weather is severe and results in the closure of your institution, then NIH submission policies regarding weather/other disasters apply.
