I have an active NIH award that does not allow for automatic carry-over. Is the NIH removing the prior approval requirement to carry forward unobligated balances on active grants for immediate efforts to support activities related to the COVID-19 virus?

Yes.  Yale NIH awards not under the Streamlined Non-competing Application Process (SNAP) may carry forward unobligated balances on active grants for immediate efforts to support activities related to or affected by COVID-19 as long as the charges are allowable costs and are within the scope of the original award.

In addition, affected recipients that have active non-SNAP grant projects may extend the final budget period of the approved project period on active grants one time for a period of up to 12 months without requesting prior approval, by notifying the assigned grants management specialist.
