Changes in NIH rules to help grantees affected by Hurricane Katrina—APA considering actions to help

APA is currently considering actions to help members whose research has been affected by Hurricane Katrina.

Noting the need for flexibility as NIH grantees along the Gulf Coast assess damage to their research labs or populations, NIH has announced the following steps:

  1. NIH encourages grantees to discuss any damage to their research program with their NIH program officer as soon as possible.

  2. NIH will consider requests for administrative supplements for extensions in time that include personnel costs; and replacement of equipment, supplies and unique resources damaged or lost as a result of the storm. Instructions are on the NIH Grants web page.
