The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center invites Statements of Interest (SOI) for projects to be initiated in Federal Fiscal Year (FY) 2019. Approximately $400,000 may be available to fund projects that support NW CASC science and resource management priorities. Applications should be submitted through the RFPManager system by March 13, 2019.
Due to the recent federal government shutdown and recently implemented U.S. Department of the Interior award procedures, the timeline for this year’s SOI and proposal development and review process is compressed. Although the primary purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to solicit proposals to be initiated with FY 2019 funds, applicants are also encouraged to submit SOI that could be developed for future fiscal years (e.g., FY 2020), as well as ideas that the NW CASC may be able to assist with via other resources and mechanisms (e.g., leveraging, networking, consultation, etc.). The NW CASC is committed to being inclusive and transparent while working to broaden the community of practice around climate adaptation in the Northwest.
