2017 Interim Award Funding Policy

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), including NIH, operates under the “Further Continuing and Security Assistance Appropriations Act, 2017,” (Public Law 114-254) signed by President Obama on December 10, 2016.  This Act (CR) continues government operations through April 28, 2017 at 99.8099 percent of the FY 2016 enacted level.

  • Until FY 2017 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-17-048 for details.
  • NIDDK will announce additional details regarding its interim FY 2017 funding policy, including details regarding funding of competing grant applications as information becomes available.
