Sea Grant and the U.S. Coastal Research Program (USCRP) announce a new funding opportunity for collaborative projects to integrate research, its application, and community engagement in thematic areas of long-term coastal evolution, extreme storms, and human and ecosystem health.
Proposals should address the needs or gaps that have been identified by or are evident from USCRP-funded projects, to move research project findings toward application through service delivery and decision support for coastal community decision-makers, planners, and other coastal stakeholders.
The following entities are encouraged to participate in this funding opportunity, in conjunction with a Sea Grant Program: any individual; any public or private corporation, partnership, or other association or entity (including any Sea Grant Program or other institution); or any State, political subdivision of a State, Tribal government or agency or officer thereof. Applications for the opportunity must come from a Sea Grant Program and interested partners should participate in conjunction with a Sea Grant Program.
It is anticipated that approximately $4,000,000 will be available to fund 10-20 projects at up to $150,000 over two years (Tier 1) or up to $500,000 over four years (Tier 2). Matching funds will not be required for this competition.
An informational webinar about the funding opportunity will be held on May 16, 2022 from 2-3 pm ET. Register in advance here.
Letters of intent must be submitted to NSGO by 5:00 p.m. local time on June 15, 2022. Applications must be submitted to Grants.gov by 11:59 p.m. ET on August 30, 2022.
