Call for proposals: regional vulnerability assessments for ocean acidification (RVA-OA20)

Agency Name: Department of Commerce

Description: The purpose of this document is to advise the public that NOAA/OAR/Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) is soliciting proposals for collaborative projects of up to 3 years in duration that synthesize ocean acidification information at a regional scale (e.g. Large Marine Ecosystem, large estuary or collection of small estuaries, and state or collection of states in US waters) to determine where societal vulnerabilities to ocean acidification exist or are emerging, in order to provide actionable information for marine resource decision makers and/or bolster the resilience of the nation’s Blue Economy. This funding opportunity will not support the collection of new chemical or ecological observations or species response data. Social science data collection is permitted. Funding is contingent upon the availability of Fiscal Year 2020 Federal appropriations. It is anticipated that projects funded under this announcement will have a September 1, 2020 start date. Approximately 1-6 projects for up to 3 years in duration are expected to be funded at the level of approximately $100,000 – $350,000 per year per proposal. It is anticipated that a total of up to $2 million may be available in FY20 to support the first year of projects.

Application deadline: Mar 27, 2020
