The Mineral Resources Program (MRP) of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is offering a grant and/or cooperative agreement opportunity to universities, state agencies, tribal governments or organizations, and industry or other private sector organizations that have the ability to conduct research in topics that meet the goals of the Mineral Resources Program. The goals of the Mineral Resources Program, as described in the MRP five-year plan for FY 1999-2004 are as follows: 1. Understand the geologic setting and genesis of the Nations mineral resources in a global context, in order to ensure a sustainable supply of minerals for the Nations future. 2. Understand the influence of mineral deposits, mineralizing processes, and mineral-resource development on environmental integrity, ecosystems, public health, and geologic hazards. 3. Provide objective information and analysis related to minerals issues to support those who make decisions regarding national security, land use, resource policy, and environmental or public health and safety. 4. Collect, compile, analyze, and disseminate data and develop and maintain national and international databases for timely release of information to users. 5. Apply mineral-resource expertise and technologies to non-mineral-resource issues. The MRP anticipates making awards in fiscal year 2005 from five to eight proposals submitted under this program announcement. The total amount of funding available for all awards is $250,000. Work performance under these awards must start before October 1, 2005, and the proposed work must be completed no later than one year from the start date. Awards will be made as either grants or cooperative agreements (for a cooperative agreement, substantial involvement is expected between the USGS and the recipient when carrying out the activity contemplated in the agreement).
