Description: 

Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), Reclamation is providing cost-shared funding on a competitive basis for applied science projects within the Desert LCC in fiscal year (FY) 2014. In general, this FOA provides funding for projects to analyze the impacts of climate change to natural or cultural resources that affect or are affected by water resources, and to develop tools to address those impacts within boundaries of the Desert LCC. More specifically, the funding categories in this FOA are based on two Critical Management Questions (CMQs) developed by the Desert LCC, including: (1) how to incorporate climate change information in the development of environmental flow needs for riparian species and habitat; and, (2) how changing wildfire regimes may impact the sensitive ecosystems within the Desert LCC.
