  • New due dates will be issued through FastLane Advisory and other electronic methods for deadlines that fell between Oct. 1 and Oct. 25.
  • Canceled merit-review panels will be rescheduled to a later date.
  • Applicants may be delayed in being told whether proposals are declined or funded.
  • Continuing Grant Increments will be issued as early as possible.
  • Awardees should submit project reports as soon as possible.
