Federal Grant Proposals Temporarily Restricted During Grants.gov System Downtime

Grants.gov, the federal-wide portal for accepting federal grant submissions, will be offline from September 22-30, 2022. Federal grant proposals cannot be submitted during this time. Additionally, NIH deadlines during this time will move to Monday, October 3. Further information can be found here and here. UF’s internal deadline for all proposals will be Friday, September 30. UFIRST will not be able to gather opportunity announcements from September 22-30. Due to the scheduled outage, the adjusted proposal deadline also moves closer to NIH’s October 5 deadline. Thus, it is recommended to initiate potential proposals before September 22. Please plan accordingly.
