Federal Funding Opportunity: Identification and Application of Acidification Thresholds in Coastal Ecosystems

National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) and Ocean Acidification Program (OAP)

The NOAA/NOS/National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) and the NOAA/OAR/Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) are soliciting proposals for the Identification and Application of Acidification Thresholds in Coastal Ecosystems. The goal is to develop a threshold detection and warning capability for ocean acidification in concert with other stresses. This includes identification of indicator species and parameters (ecological, economic, and/or social) to monitor that might provide early warning of impending change from one ecosystem state to another. Funding is contingent upon the availability of Fiscal Year 2018 Federal appropriations. It is anticipated that projects funded under this announcement will have a September 1, 2018 start date. Applicants should submit proposals not to exceed $275,000 per year for projects generally 2-4 years in duration, with a total multi-year budget not to exceed $1,100,000. Funding for this program is contingent upon the availability of funds, which may not have been appropriated at the time of this announcement.

Due Date: Letters of Intent must be received by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on December 8, 2017 and are required before submitting a full proposal. Full applications must be received and validated by Grant.gov by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on February 13, 2018. 

The full funding opportunity and information on how to apply can be found on grants.gov. 

For more information, please contact Beth Turner, NOAA/NCCOS, 603-862-4680 or elizabeth.turner@noaa.gov.

FY2017 Ocean Technology Transition Project

NOAA Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS)

The primary objective of IOOS’ Ocean Technology Transition Project (OTT) is to reduce the Research to Operations transition period for ocean observing, product development, and data management technologies for the ocean, coastal and Great Lakes. The term ‘Technologies’ includes: ocean, coastal, and Great Lakes sensors, Information Technology (data management, data visualization, model transition); platform enhancement, and technology modernization efforts. This objective is accomplished by investing in the transition of emerging and promising marine and Great Lakes observing technological capabilities from the mid to latter phases of research into operational status.

Federal Funding Opportunity: Understanding Climate Impacts on Fish Stocks and Fisheries to Inform Sustainable Management

Climate Program Office

The NOAA Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), Climate Program Office and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) Office of Science and Technology have established a partnership to advance understanding of climate-related impacts on fish or other species that support economically important fisheries. The goal is to inform sustainable fisheries management and promote resilience of the nation’s fish stocks and fisheries in a changing climate.

For FY17, this OAR/NMFS partnership, through the Coastal and Ocean Climate Applications (COCA) Program, will continue to take a regional approach to improving the resilience and adaptation of fisheries in a changing climate by soliciting proposals under two competitions. The first competition solicits proposals for projects in the California Current Large Marine Ecosystem (CCLME) and the second competition solicits proposals for projects in the Northeast Shelf Large Marine Ecosystem (NESLME). Through this announcement, it is estimated that approximately $2.2 million will be available in FY2017 for new awards pending budget appropriations. For competition I, projects can request up to $700,000 a year for three years, for a total of $2.1 million over three years. For competition II, projects can request up to $500,000 a year for three years for a total of $1.5 million over three years.
