Funding Opportunity: Call for Statements of Interest for NW CASC Research

The Climate Adaptation Science Center Network, made up of nine regional Climate Adaptation Science Centers serving all US states, territories and affiliated Pacific Islands, is coming together to advance climate adaptation science through its Federal Fiscal Year 2022 funding opportunity. Through this funding opportunity, an estimated $10 million may be available across the network for research to support natural and cultural resource managers making science-based, climate adaptation decisions!

As part of this effort, the NW CASC is seeking proposals for Northwest climate adaptation research. Proposed projects should focus on developing scientific information and products that can be directly applied to the following resource management priorities, either locally or broadly across landscapes in Idaho, Oregon, Washington and western Montana:

  • Management of Invasive Species and Diseases under Future Climate Scenarios
  • Management of Shrubland Ecosystems under Future Climate Scenarios
  • Managing Climate-driven, Post-fire Ecological Transformation

Individuals from the following eligible organizations may submit proposals as the lead Principal Investigator:

  • Members of the NW CASC Consortium (Boise State University, Oregon State University, University of Montana, University of Washington, Washington State University, Western Washington University)
  • USGS centers, field stations, laboratories, Cooperative Research Units, etc.

Researchers from other organizations (federal, state, tribal, non-governmental and other) may participate in CASC-funded projects and receive funds via subawards, contracts or interagency agreements through an eligible organization.

An informational webinar about this opportunity will be held on Tuesday, February 16th at 3 PM (PT). You can find the Zoom information in the RFP linked below.

The deadline for Statements of Interest is: Friday, March 19, 2021 | 2 PM (PT)
