Wednesday, July 6, 2022. 2:30 PM. Webinar: Funding Opportunity: Actionable Science in the Gulf of Mexico. Julien Lartigue and Hannah Brown, NOAA. Sponsored by NOAA NOS. More information here. Register here.

Abstract: The NOAA RESTORE Science Program will provide an overview and answer questions about its newest funding opportunity to support previously planned, actionable science in the Gulf of Mexico. This competition will provide natural resource managers, researchers, and other stakeholders with funding to carry out a planned, collaborative research project that
informs a specific management decision impacting natural resources in the Gulf of Mexico. The Science Program will make approximately $15 million available for this competition to fund approximately 10 projects that will run for up to five years. A letter of intent (3-page maximum) is required for each proposal and must be submitted by August 16, 2022. The Science Program will provide written feedback to project teams on their letters in mid-September and host additional webinars for those teams to review the full proposal process. A full proposal will be due by November 15, 2022.
