Will agencies consider longer no cost time extensions if needed to finish a project after disruption?

Researchers should document the actual impact of COVID-19 on the progress of their grants to provide details for any future no-cost time extension request.  Some agencies will consider longer-than-normal no cost-time extensions, or multiple no-cost time extensions in this situation.  For most federal research grants, Duke has the authority to grant a first no-cost time extension up to 12 months in duration.
