OMB’s Grant Exceptions During COVID-19 Spread
In an effort to lessen administrative burdens that could delay funding, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has instituted some grant exceptions for instances where the awards are supporting research and services related to COVID-19.
Through the 90-day Public Health Emergency Declaration, awarding agencies are authorized to make a number of COVID-19 grant exceptions, including extending awards and reports, waiving various approval requirements, and shortening the timeframe for Notice of Funding Opportunities. OMB will assess these exceptions after the 90-day period.
