To the MIT Research Community,

Our Sponsoring Federal Agencies are beginning to provide their plans for support to Grants and Contracts in the event of a Federal Shutdown. In general they are stating that awards already made may continue to conduct research but payments will not be processed. Further, Agency support actions (e.g. no-cost extensions, renewals, supplements, proposal review) will not occur.
