As of January 2019, many federal research agencies are impacted by the partial federal government shutdown. During the shutdown, no new grants or contracts will be awarded by the impacted agencies. Grants.Gov, FastLane, and Research.gov proposal preparation and submission will be available, but proposals will not be processed until the impacted agencies are reopened.
Unless otherwise notified by a federal agency or pass-through sponsor, performance on existing federally funded grants and contracts may continue during the shutdown.
- National Science Foundation
- National Aeronautics and Space Administration
- National Endowment for the Arts
- National Endowment for the Humanities
Please note that several agencies already have their budgets in place and are not affected by the partial shutdown. These agencies include the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense, and the Department of Health and Human Services, which includes the National Institutes of Health.
Student federal aid through the Department of Education is not affected because the department has its funding in place.
The IU Office of Federal Relations in Washington, DC, is closely monitoring the situation and will provide additional information as it becomes available.
For information on specific agencies or programs, please contact Laura Kolton, IU Federal Research Relations Director, at (202) 816-3325 or email@example.com.
