2020 Interim Award Funding Policy

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), including NIH, operates under the “Continuing Appropriations Act, 2020 and Health Extenders Act of 2019” (Public Law 116-59) signed by President Trump on September 27, 2019. This Act (CR) continues government operations through November 21, 2019 at 99.3209 percent of the FY 2019 enacted level.

  • Until FY 2020 appropriations are enacted, NIH will issue non-competing research grant awards at a level below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (generally up to 90% of the previously committed level). See NOT-OD-20-003: NIH Operates Under a Continuing Resolution for details.
  • NIDDK will announce additional details regarding its interim FY 2020 funding policy, including details regarding funding of competing grant applications as information becomes available.
