The Sea Grant programs of Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina and the NOAA Office for Coastal Management (OCM) are jointly soliciting preproposals for a Southeast Region research project focused on coastal community resilience.
Each proposal should be from a team of researchers — one from each state — who will work in a partnership with a coastal community in each state, as well as engage with our Sea Grant extension specialists and the OCM.
The desired outcome is a quantitative assessment of the efficacy of a new or existing tool that can be used by coastal communities in South Atlantic states to increase their resilience to hazards — contemporary, such as storm surge, and future such as sea level rise.
One research project will be funded for two years for up $225,000 per year or $450,000 total.
Please read and follow complete instructions for this regional RFP at https://www.flseagrant.org/south-atlantic-regional-research-coastal-community-resilience/.
One member of the team must take on the role of lead PI to be responsible for submitting all required materials to Florida Sea Grant by Feb. 13, 2015, at 4 p.m. There will be no extensions beyond this deadline.
As explained in the RFP, the budgets of individual co-PIs are limited to $100,000 for two years; the lead PI should include an additional $25,000 per year for project coordination, team meetings, etc. There is a required match of $25,000 in non-federal funds for every $100,000 of federal funds requested.
