In order to give the science community more time to adapt to remote activities because of the COVID-19 emergency, a number of near-term Heliophysics (Appendix B) due dates have been delayed.


This Amendment delays both Step-1 and Step-2 due dates for the following program elements:


B.4 Heliophysics Guest Investigators Open (HGIO) Step-1 proposals are now due April 29, 2020, and Step-2 proposals are now due July 29, 2020. Proposers to HGIO are reminded that both Step-1 and Step-2 proposals to HGIO will be evaluated using a dual-anonymous review process. Proposals must be prepared according to the guidelines in Section 2.2 of the program element and in the associated “Guidelines for Anonymous Proposals” document under “Other Documents” on the NSPIRES page for HGIO.


B.12 Heliophysics Data Environment Enhancements (HDEE) Step-1 proposals are now due May 8, 2020, and Step-2 proposals are now due July 1, 2020. Please note that this year there are two types of proposals with two different page limits and dollar values. See Section 1.3 of the HDEE program element text.
