Potential Government Shutdown

Should a lapse in federal funding occur after midnight on September 30, 2015, it is possible that the agency that funds your research may be shut down. Below are links to the notices that DSP has received from several agencies about the actions they will take if that happens.

If you are currently working on a proposal, you may want to download the announcement, guidelines, etc., to your hard drive, in case the agency website goes dark.

DSP will continue to add agencies to this page as we receive more notices. Feel free to check back from time to time.
