Partial Government Shutdown - Agency Contingency Plans

A partial shutdown of the federal government has continued into the new year of 2019. While NIH and the Department of Education are funded, others such as NSF, NASA, NOAA, USDA, NIST, NEH, and many more are not. Agency Contingency Plans and FAQs can be found on the OMB (Office of Management and Budget) website.

When you visit the above link, you can scroll to find a specific agency and learn about how the partial shutdown affects that agency.

The University of Iowa Vice President for Research page also has some useful FAQs about Government Shutdown Guidance.

If you have questions about your funded project that are not answered on the OMB website, please contact the DSP reviewer for your project. The assigned reviewer can be found via the DSP Research Tracker. For other questions, the list of DSP agency assignments can be found in our Staff Directory.
