NIH Natural Disaster Policy Reminder


If your institution closes due to severe weather or other natural disasters, NIH has policies in place to help your research to continue. We recently published an NIH Guide Notice that reminds those impacted by Hurricane Dorian about the flexibilities for application and report submission provided by these policies. 

For more resources, including guidance on animal welfare issues, check our Extramural Response to Natural Disasters  page.
