*Excerpts from the announcement*
The purpose of this document is to advise the public that NOAA/OAR/Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) is soliciting proposals for collaborative projects of up to 2 years in duration that synthesize ocean acidification information at a regional scale (e.g. Large Marine Ecosystem, large estuary or collection of small estuaries, and state or collection of states in US waters) to determine where societal vulnerabilities to acidification exist or are emerging, in order to provide actionable information for marine resource decision makers. This funding opportunity will not support the collection of new chemical or ecological observations or species response data. Social science data collection is permitted. Funding is contingent upon the availability of Fiscal Year 2017 Federal appropriations. It is anticipated that projects funded under this announcement will have a September 1, 2017 start date. Approximately 3-6 projects for 2 years in duration are expected to be funded at the level of approximately $100,000 - $350,000 per year per proposal. It is anticipated that up to $2,000,000 may be available in FY 2017 for the first year of projects. For details, please see the announcement here.
