Effects of Sea Level Rise (ESLR) Technical Assistance: The purpose of this document is to advise the public that NOAA/NOS/National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS)/Competitive Research Program (CRP) [formerly Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research/Coastal Ocean Program] is soliciting proposals for the Effects of Sea Level Rise Program (ESLR) Technical Assistance. The ESLR program name was shortened in 2020, and was formerly known as the Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise Program (EESLR). ESLR is a multidisciplinary research program that emphasizes the use of integrated models and tools of dynamic physical and biological processes capable of evaluating vulnerability and resilience of our coasts under multiple sea level rise (SLR), inundation, and management scenarios to inform coastal restoration, land management, and planning activities. The overall goal of this solicitation is to facilitate informed adaptation planning and coastal management decisions that account for the effects of SLR and climate change through support and leveraging of mature modeling approaches by investigators supported by ESLR and EESLR projects. This solicitation aims to support approaches capable of evaluating the performance of natural and conventional flood mitigation projects and policy changes to subsequently inform the development of applications to other granting programs that can support the flood mitigation projects and planning exercises. The term mature references that the model must be capable of providing the capacity requested without further advancement or substantial data collection. In particular, proposals will support the development of information to enable more innovative applications by coastal decision makers to the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Building Resilient Infrastructure and Communities (BRIC) program, and others where applicable. Funding is contingent upon the availability of Fiscal Year 2023 Federal appropriations. It is anticipated that at least $250,000 may be available in Fiscal Year 2023 for the first year for all projects combined. If funds become available for this program, 1-2 projects are expected to be funded at the level of $50,000 to $250,000 per year per proposal. Projects are expected not to exceed $500,000 or 2 years in duration. NCCOS/CRP may reject any proposals submitted with an annual budget that is greater than $250,000 for any year. It is anticipated that projects funded under this announcement will have a September 1, 2023 start date, however a future fiscal year start date is possible, pending appropriations. NOAA encourages applicants and awardees to support the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion when writing their proposals and performing their work. Diversity is defined as the mixture of the unique attributes that shape an individual's identity which they bring into the workplace to help NOAA accomplish its goals (NOAA 2020). Diversity refers to demographic diversity (e.g., race, gender, sexual orientation), experiential diversity (e.g., affinities, hobbies, and abilities), and cognitive diversity (e.g., sensory processing and problem solving). Equity is defined as the consistent and systematic fair, just, and impartial treatment of all individuals, including individuals who belong to underserved communities that have been denied such treatment (White House 2021, Executive Order 13985 2022). Inclusion is defined as a culture that values the unique attributes of all team members. Inclusion is an environment which is respectful, collaborative, supportive, and one that allows for equal access (NOAA 2020). Inclusion requires active and intentional engagement on the part of everyone and provides a feeling of belonging. Promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion improves creativity, productivity, and the vitality of the research community in which NOAA engages. The required LOI should be sent by e-mail to [email protected]. Full proposals will not be considered if a LOI was not submitted by the LOI due date. Full proposals should be submitted through Grants.gov, http://www.grants.gov. Sign up to receive any potential amendments to this Announcement via www.grants.gov.
