Funding Opportunity: U.S. Coastal Research Program and NOAA Sea Grant 2022 Translating Coastal Research into Application
All applicants must complete a partnership form before 12:00 p.m. PST on Wednesday, June 1, 2022. Open to Sea Grant programs.
The U.S. Coastal Research Program (USCRP) is a multi-agency led effort to coordinate Federal activities, strengthen academic programs, and address coastal community needs. The collaborative projects funded through this NOAA Sea Grant and USCRP competition will serve to integrate research, outreach, and education to engage with coastal stakeholders. Successful applicants will propose collaborative programs in which multiple disciplines and sources of knowledge are integrated holistically to lead to new and novel understanding and solutions to coastal resilience issues.
It is anticipated that approximately $4,000,000 will be available to move research project findings detailed in The USCRP Nearshore Report toward application through service delivery that integrates research, its application, and community engagement. The three thematic program areas are (1) long-term coastal evolution, (2) extreme storms, and (3) human and ecosystem health. The USCRP Story Map highlights research that has been funded by the program.
