The purpose of this document is to advise the public that NOAA/NOS/National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS)/Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research (CSCOR) is soliciting proposals for the Northern Gulf of Mexico Ecosystems and Hypoxia Assessment Program (NGOMEX) and Coastal Hypoxia Research
Funding is contingent upon the availability of Fiscal Year 2016 Federal appropriations.
It is anticipated that projects funded under this announcement will have a September 1, 2016 start date.
Total funding for this research:
For NGOMEX, approximately 2 to 6 projects, for approximately 2-4 years in duration, are expected to be funded at a level not to exceed $300,000 per year per proposal.
For CHRP, approximately 3 to 7 projects, for approximately 2-5 years in duration, are expected to be funded at a level not to exceed $400,000 per year per proposal.
It is anticipated that up to $1,850,000 may be available in Fiscal Year 2016 for the first year of all hypoxia projects combined.
In addition to these annual funding limits, NOAA does not anticipate funding any proposals submitted with total budgets (across all years) that are greater than $1,200,000 for NGOMEX and $2,000,000 for CHRP.
Background information about NOAA’s NGOMEX and CHRP Programs can be found at http://coastalscience.noaa.gov/research/pollution/hypoxia/ngomex and http://coastalscience.noaa.gov/research/pollution/hypoxia/chrp, respectively.
