Northwest Climate Science Center Funding Opportunity FY 2019

Northwest CSC

Deadline Passed as of 3/13/2019. Deadline for 2020 unknown. This document invites proposals for projects to be initiated by the Northwest Climate Science Center (NW CSC) in Fiscal Year (FY) 2018. Project proposals must relate to elements of the NW CSC Science Agenda for 2018-23. The NW CSC Science Agenda for 2018– 23 charts the overall science direction and research opportunities for the NW CSC over the next 5 years in response to stated regional natural and cultural resource management priorities. The anticipated products build upon an extensive research portfolio funded by the NW CSC from 2011 to 2017.

Funding Amount
Individual Projects will not exceed $300,000
Members of the NW CASC University Consortium and USGS centers, field stations, and laboratories may submit proposals in response to this funding opportunity. Each proposal must have a principal investigator from an eligible organization. Parties from non-eligible organizations (Federal, State, Tribal, or other) can participate and receive funds via subaward from an eligible organization.
Prospective principal investigators are strongly advised to seek out, establish, and clearly describe working partnerships with local or regional stakeholders from organizations concerned with management of natural or cultural resources. These organizations should include bureaus within the U.S. Department of the Interior and/or Northwest Tribes, but may also include other Federal agencies, State agencies, and private or non- governmental entities. Proposals that demonstrate clear engagement with stakeholders from such organizations, showing benefits through a collaborative process, will be evaluated more favorably.
