Every week, federal agencies publish grant announcements on Grants.gov. Below, we highlight new funding opportunities from the Department of the Interior, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of State, NASA, and the Department of Energy.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service requests interested entities to submit restoration, research and Regional Project proposals for the restoration of the Great Lakes Basin fish and wildlife resources, as authorized under the Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act (16 USC 941c). The purpose of the Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act (GLFWRA) is to provide assistance to States, Indian Tribes, and other interested entities to encourage cooperative conservation, restoration and management of the fish and wildlife resources and their habitats in the Great Lakes Basin.
2. Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture – Community Food Projects (CFP) Competitive Grant Program
The primary goals of the CFP are to meet the food needs of low-income individuals through food distribution, community outreach to assist in participation in federally-assisted nutrition programs, or improving access to food as part of a comprehensive service. The program also seeks to increase the self-reliance of communities in providing for the food needs of the communities and meet specific state, local or neighborhood food and agricultural needs.
The U.S. Department of State Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) announces an open competition for organizations interested in submitting applications for projects that protect fundamental freedoms in Morocco. DRL seeks to support programs to increase advocacy for and implementation of a strong legal framework that protects the freedom of expression, association, and assembly. Projects should have the potential to have an immediate impact leading to long-term sustainable reforms, and should demonstrate the potential for sustainability beyond DRL resources.
4. National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) – ROSES 2016: Magnetospheric Multiscale Guest Investigator
This program solicits basic and applied research supporting research and technology in space and Earth sciences. Awards range from under $100K per year for focused, limited efforts (e.g., data analysis) to more than $1M per year for extensive activities (e.g., development of specialized science experimental hardware).
5. Department of Energy, Office of Science – Biosystems Design to Enable Next-Generation Biofuels and Bioproducts
This program seeks applications for research of interest to the Genomic Science Program. Applications should include strategies to address biocontainment, minimizing risks of potential release of engineered organisms into the environment or other unintended outcomes.
