Is it appropriate to send an updated CV for a change in grant status? Specifically, I just had a grant reviewed that scored in a fundable range (but won't know for sure about funding until well after most places will have interviewed). Should I send an updated CV and/or email with the score of the grant? Also, does it matter if I know that some schools have already scheduled their phone/campus interviews? Is it worth sending them an updated CV as well? Thanks!

Just my 2 cents, but a post-doc in our lab is currently in the same predicament and she is not going to send an updated CV. Our mentor advised her to only send updates for two reasons, 1.) a new publication in a top-tier journal, and 2.) grant funding (but not just receiving the score). Sending an update when you have the score but not the funding is like sending a revised CV for an "accepted pending minor revisions" publication. In all likelihood the grant/manuscript will get funded/published but you can't be sure until the program officer/editor sends the official acceptance letter. If massive budget cuts go through and the grant is somehow not funded, it would put you in an awkward position. Better to be safe than sorry.
Of course you should mention this during an interview, but sending an updated CV to places that you have not heard from can be dicey. More importantly…Congratulations on the great score.
main effect for type of institution I would say. I don't think these considerations apply for R2s and SLACs
