ATN Request for Proposals (RFP): Research Aimed at Ending the HIV Epidemic: A Plan for America (Updated March 16, 2020)
When delays occur because the applicant and/or their local partners are officially closed or unable to secure partnership memoranda of understanding/agreements due to the effects of COVID-19, the NIH ATN leadership will consider acceptance of late applications on a case-by-case basis. Applicants need not request advance permission to submit late due to this declared emergency. However, an e-mail, if possible, by March 23, 2020, notifying us of the late submission to ATNadmin@unc.edu would be appreciated.
