FY21 Effects of Sea Level Rise (ESLR): 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 (CSCOR)/Coastal Ocean Program (COP)], is soliciting proposals for the Effects of Sea Level Rise Program (ESLR). The program name was shortened in 2020, and was formerly known as the Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise Program (EESLR). This solicitation is to improve adaptation and planning in response to regional and local effects of sea level rise and coastal inundation through targeted research on key technologies, natural and nature-based infrastructure, physical and biological processes, and model evaluation. The overall goal of the ESLR Program is to facilitate informed adaptation planning and coastal management decisions through a multidisciplinary research program that results in integrated models of dynamic physical and biological processes capable of evaluating vulnerability and resilience under multiple SLR, inundation, and management scenarios. Funding is contingent upon the availability of Fiscal Year 2021 Federal appropriations. It is anticipated that projects funded under this announcement will have a September 1, 2021 or September 1, 2022 start date. Total funding for this research: There are two distinct focal areas for this solicitation that will compete separately, 1) Coastal Resilience and 2) Surface Transportation Resilience. It is anticipated that approximately $1,200,000 may be available in Fiscal Year 2021 for the first year for some projects in each focus area, while an additional $1,200,000 could be available in Fiscal Year 2022 for the first year for additional projects selected from this opportunity. Approximately 2-4 projects of 2-4 years in duration are expected to be funded under the Coastal Resilience focus area at a level of approximately $200,000 to $400,000 per year per proposal, with a total budget (across all years) that is less than $1,600,000 for the Coastal Resilience focus area. Approximately 2-4 projects of 2-4 years in duration are expected to be funded under the Surface Transportation Resilience focus area at a level of approximately $200,000 to $500,000 per year per proposal with a total budget (across all years) that is less than $2,000,000 for the Surface Transportation Resilience focus area. Electronic Access: Background information about the ESLR Program, including additional information on this Announcement, details on the timing of an informational webinar, and eventually a recording of the webinar can be found at https://coastalscience.noaa.gov/research/coastal-change/ecological-effects-sea-level-rise-program. The required LOI should be sent by e-mail to nccos.grant.awards@noaa.gov. Full proposals will not be considered if a LOI was not submitted. 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.
