NOAA Great Lakes Habitat Restoration Regional Partnership Grants
Application deadline: January 15, 2013
NOAA's Restoration Center has released a federal funding opportunity (FFO) for habitat restoration in Great Lakes Areas of Concern. The FFO is available at www.grants.gov, funding number NOAA-NMFS-HCPO-2013-2003590. The closing date is January 15, 2013.
Through this solicitation, NOAA seeks to openly compete funding available for multi-year Great Lakes Regional Habitat Restoration Partnerships. Partnerships will result in implementation of a wide-range of individual habitat restoration projects focused in U.S. Great Lakes Areas of Concern (AOCs) (http://www.epa.gov/glnpo/aoc/) with funds provided by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative as anticipated in the President's FY2013 Budget.
NOAA anticipates up to $10 million may be available to establish habitat restoration Partnerships in 2013, with annual funding anticipated to maintain them for up to three years. Typical Partnership awards are expected to range from $500,000 to $5,000,000 per year. Funding will support both engineering and design projects and on the ground implementation projects.
If you have any questions regarding this funding opportunity, please contact either Julie Sims (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jessica Berrio (email@example.com).
Note: This is NOT a request for individual habitat restoration project proposals. A separate project-based funding opportunity will be released in January 2013.
We Are Prairie Biotic Research (PBR) is an all-volunteer, Wisconsin nonprofit established in 2000 to foster basic biotic research in prairies and savannas. One way we do this is through a competitive Small Grants Program that funds grants up to $1000 to individuals for the study of any grassland taxon anywhere in the USA. We support both natural history and experimental science. We are especially eager to support independent researchers (those lacking institutional support), but anyone having a U.S. Social Security number may apply. Since 2002, we’ve awarded 136 grants worth $130,196 to people in 30 states to study insects, plants, mammals, reptiles, slime molds, mycorrhizal fungi, spiders, snails, amphibians, birds, invasive species, effects of management, and the human dimensions of conservation. Many of these grants supported graduate student research. In 2013, we expect to fund at least 10 grants of up to $1000 each with the donations we have received, including some restricted by donors to support research in Iowa and Wisconsin.
To Apply for a Grant Visit our website (prairiebioticresearch.org) to learn more, to download our proposal form, instructions, and a sample researcher agreement form that winners of this competition must sign. Check out the history and overview files in the Small Grants section of the website to see what sorts of proposals have won funding in the past. Review the reports submitted by researchers of past years.
We must receive your proposal through the mail before January 6, 2013. Those who won funding in 2012 are ineligible for this funding in 2013, but those who won funding longer ago are welcome to submit proposals to further that same work or to support a new project.
