WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Currently, NIJ has numerous open solicitations. All open solicitations that had a deadline falling before January 1, 2002 have now been extended 60 days due to the recent tragic events.

The NIJ Website has been updated with these new deadlines, but the PDF version of the solicitation along with the hardcopy available through NCJRS have not been changed. All solicitations hardcopies at NCJRS have been placed on hold until NIJ can laserprint new dates for the cover page.

Those interested can still download solicitation information and applications from the NIJ Website; however, they should be aware of the deadline extension.
