NOT-OD-20-003 announces that 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. The Continuing Resolution continues government operations through November 21, 2019 at 99.3209% of the FY 2019 enacted level.

Continuing the procedures under NOT-OD-19-131 and consistent with NIH practices during the Continuing Resolutions of FY 2006-2019, NIH will issue non-competing research awards at a level below that indicated on the most recent Notice of Award (generally up to 90% of the previously committed level). Upward adjustments will be considered after FY 2020 appropriations are enacted.

All FY 2019 legislative mandates (NOT-OD-19-030), salary cap (NOT-OD-19-099), and predoctoral and postdoctoral stipend levels and tuition and fees (NOT-OD-19-036) remain in effect under this Continuing Resolution.
