How Should Researchers Report on the Effects of COVID-19 on NIH-funded Research?

Recipients of NIH-support who experienced delays during the Public Health Emergency must report on the effects of COVID-19 on NIH-funded research in their next Research Performance Progress Report (RPPR).

Recipients should not submit standard letters to report on these details.

Funding Institutes and Centers (ICs) will consider the effects that are reported by the recipient when reviewing and approving the RPPR.
