           and Nutrition (GH/HIDN) anticipates awarding two (2) cooperative agreements, RESPOND and PREDICT, under its Avian and
           Pandemic Influenza and Zoonotic Disease Program. The goal of the RESPOND Project is to improve the capacity of countries
           in high risk areas to respond to outbreaks of emergent zoonotic diseases that pose a serious threat to human health. The intent
           of the project is to respond to outbreaks while they are still within the animal community, however, there may be occasions
           where a response is needed within the human population.

           Unrestricted (i.e., open to any type of entity above), subject to any clarification in text field entitled "Additional Information on
           Eligibility"



                                     Additional Information on Eligibility:
           Applicants may be U.S. and non-U.S. (including Uzbek) non-profit or for-profit entities. USAID strongly encourages the
           submission of applications directly from Uzbek organizations. The laws and decrees in Uzbekistan require that foreign legal
           entities must be registered to do business within those countries. These procedures are quite lengthy and it may take up to a
           year or longer before an organization knows whether its registration is accepted by the host governments. Given the in-country
           operating environment for Uzbekistan in relation to registration and presence, the applicant through itself, or subcontractors, or
           joint-venture members must demonstrate current registration in Uzbekistan. Information on non-governmental organizations
           (NGOs) operating in Uzbekistan can be found through various English and Russian-language websites and NGO organizations.
           No fee or profit will be paid to the grant or cooperative agreement award recipient. Applicants that are selected for funding and
           that are first time recipients of USAID funds may have to undergo pre-award financial and management reviews. USAID
           encourages applications which include private sector involvement and contribution. To be considered for funding under this
           RFA, proposed programs must meet all of the following eligibility requirements: • Applications must have clearly-defined
           objectives that will lead to verifiable results. • Applications must have a draft Performance Management Plan with defined
           indicators. • Applications must address one or more of the objectives listed in this RFA • Applications must show administrative
           capacity to undertake the project • Applications must indicate past performance in areas of work similar to this RFA •
           Applications must complement and not duplicate ongoing work undertaken by the Government of Uzbekistan, USAID, other
           donors and local organizations in the area identified above. • Applications must address concerns of gender implications and
           sustainability Cost-sharing: While not required cost-sharing is encouraged. Cost share may be provided as cash or as in-kind
           cost share. In-kind cost share must directly relate to the scope of specific program.

                            Additional Information on Eligibility:
 Eligible applicants are institutions of higher education, non-profit and for-profit organizations, and state, local and Indian tribal
 governments. Federal agencies or institutions and foreign governments may not be the primary recipient of awards under this
 announcement, but are encouraged to partner with applicants when appropriate. If requesting funds under this award, federal
 partners must identify the relevant statutory authorities that will allow for the receipt of funds. If a federal partner is a NOAA
 office, the funds will be transferred internally. If the Federal partner is an agency other than NOAA, they must demonstrate that
 they have legal authority to accept funds in excess of their appropriation. Because they would be receiving funds from a non-
 Federal source, the Economy Act (31 U.S.C 1535) would not be an appropriate authority.

                                                Description
The Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) is working to link national and regional observations, data management, and
modeling to provide required data and information on local to global scales. IOOS Regional Coastal Ocean Observing Systems
(RCOOS) complement the observing systems managed directly by federal agencies to meet national priorities. With the
guidance of Regional Associations to understand regional priorities, RCOOS provide the data, information, and products
needed to address estuarine and coastal issues of importance to the nation's ocean and coastal regions and the Great Lakes.
NOAA views this announcement as an opportunity to enhance the regional coastal component of IOOS. In addition, NOAA
views the testing and development of sensor technologies to study and monitor coastal and ocean environments as essential to
a sustained and operational IOOS. Thus, this announcement includes two focus areas for proposals: (1) Regional Coastal
Ocean Observing Systems by Geography and (2) Verification and validation of sensors for coastal and ocean observing
systems. The program priorities for this funding opportunity support NOAA's mission goals to: Serve society's needs for weather
and water information; Protect, restore, and manage the use of coastal and ocean resources through an ecosystem approach to
management; Understand climate variability and change to enhance society's ability to plan and respond; and Support the
Nation's commerce with information for safe, efficient, and environmentally sound transportation. For focus area one, NOAA
seeks proposals for one-year cooperative agreements to continue the implementation and development of the regional
component of IOOS within the following regions of the United States: Northeast (Maine to Rhode Island), Mid-Atlantic (Cape
Cod to Cape Hatteras), Southern California (Point Conception to the Mexico border), Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon,
and northern California), and Pacific Islands (Hawaii). Proposed projects must build upon the progress already made by IOOS
Regional Associations. It is expected that these efforts will result in a regional system that is optimized to provide data and
products that meet regional needs and national IOOS specifications, and that are available in forms and at rates designed to
meet the needs of regional decision makers. To accomplish that task, the regional systems will integrate existing observing
system components, and construct products and data management processes to deliver data and information to the regional
stakeholders for the benefit of the region. Proposals should demonstrate the approach and benefits of integration and
implementation at the scale of the Regional Association (not sub-regional) and should address the following: (a) Regional
deployment, operation and maintenance of sensors and platforms to address needs for data and information that have been
clearly articulated by the IOOS Regional Associations as representative of their stakeholders. (b) Regional participation in
developing a standards-based data integration framework (DIF) for data streams, quality assurance procedures, and data
delivery. (c) Generation of regional or appropriately-scaled products, including data and model output, and improved
interoperability of these outputs based on emerging standards and protocols, to facilitate the development of value-added,
targeted products for identified users. For focus area two, NOAA seeks proposals that will provide information useful for
selecting the most appropriate sensor technologies to study and monitor ocean and coastal environments, and to test, validate,
and verify such technologies. NOAA anticipates making six (6) total awards in response to this announcement, five (5) awards
in focus area one and one (1) award in focus area two.

                           Additional Information on Eligibility:
Eligible applicants are state agencies that have entered into an agreement with NMFS pursuant to section 6(c) of the ESA. The
terms ``state'' and ``state agency'' are used as defined in section 3 of the ESA (16 U.S.C. 1532). Currently eligible state
agencies are from the following states: Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New
York, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Washington. Any state agency that enters into a
section 6(c) agreement with NMFS within 60 days following the grant application deadline is also eligible to apply. State
agencies may apply for funding to conduct work on federally listed species that are included in their ESA section 6 agreement
and any species that has become a candidate or a proposed species by the grant application deadline. State agencies may not
apply for funding to conduct work on federally listed species that are not covered in their ESA section 6 agreement unless said
species is added to the agreement within 60 days following the grant application deadline. Federal agencies or institutions are
not eligible to receive Federal assistance under this notice. In addition, NOAA and NMFS employees shall not provide
assistance in writing applications, write letters of support for any application, or otherwise confer any unfair advantage on a
particular application. However, for activities involving collaboration with current NMFS programs, NMFS employees can write a
letter verifying that they are collaborating with the project.

                                                     Description
States play an essential role in the conservation and recovery of endangered and threatened species. Protected species under
the National Marine Fisheries Service's (NMFS) jurisdiction may spend all or a part of their life-cycles in state waters, and
success in conserving these species will depend in large part on working cooperatively with state agencies. The NMFS is
authorized to provide Federal assistance to eligible States to support the development of conservation programs for marine and
anadromous species that reside within that State. This assistance, provided in the form of grants through the Protected Species
Cooperative Conservation program, can be used to support conservation of endangered, threatened, and candidate or
proposed species, as well as post-delisting monitoring of recovered species. Funded activities may include development and
implementation of management plans, scientific research, and public education and outreach; proposals should address priority
actions identified in an ESA Recovery Plan, a State's ESA Section 6 Program, or a State Wildlife Action Plan. Any State agency
that has entered into or applied for an agreement with the NMFS pursuant to section 6(c) of the ESA is eligible to apply under
this solicitation. Proposals focusing on listed Pacific salmon will not be considered for funding under this grant program; such
projects can be considered under a NMFS Pacific salmon grant program. This document describes how to submit proposals for
funding in fiscal year (FY) 2010 and how the NMFS will determine which proposals will be funded; this document should be
read in its entirety, as some information has changed from the previous year.

   The NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Grant Program/Projects to Improve or Amend Coral Reef Fishery Management Plans
   (CRFMPGP) provides funding to the Regional Fishery Management Councils for projects to conserve and manage coral reef
   fisheries, as authorized under the Coral Reef Conservation Act of 2000. Projects funded through the CRFMPGP are for
   activities that (1) provide better scientific information on the status of coral reef fisheries resources, critical habitats of
   importance to coral reef fishes, and the impacts of fishing on these species and habitats; (2) identify new management
   approaches that protect coral reef biodiversity and ecosystem function through regulation of fishing and other extractive uses;
   and (3) incorporate conservation and sustainable management measures into existing or new Federal fishery management
   plans for coral reef species. Proposals selected for funding through this solicitation will be implemented through a Cooperative
   Agreement. The role of NOAA in the CRFMPGP is to help identify potential projects that reduce impacts of fishing on coral reef
   ecosystems, strengthen the development and implementation of the projects, and assist in coordination of these efforts with
   Federal state, territory or commonwealth management authorities and various coral reef user groups. Funding up to $1,050,000

  The NOAA Coral Reef Conservation Program/ General Coral Reef Conservation Grants (GCRCGP) provides funding to
  institutions of higher education, non-profit organizations, commercial organizations, Freely Associated State government
  agencies, and local and Indian tribal governments to support coral reef conservation projects in the United States and the
  Freely Associated States in the Pacific, as authorized under the Coral Reef Conservation Act of 2000. Projects funded through
  the GCRCGP support on-the ground efforts that: (1) Help preserve, sustain and restore the condition of coral reef ecosystems,
  (2) promote the wise management and sustainable use of coral reef resources, (3) increase public knowledge and awareness
  of coral reef ecosystems and issues regarding their conservation, and (4) develop sound scientific information on the condition
  of coral reef ecosystems and the threats to such ecosystems. Projects should complement and fill gaps in state, territorial and
  commonwealth coral reef programs, emphasize community-based conservation, or address local action strategy priorities.
  Proposals selected for funding through this solicitation require a 1:1 match and will be implemented through a grant. Funding of
  up to $600,000 is expected to be available for GCRCGP in FY 2010. These funds will be divided approximately equally among
  the U.S. Pacific and Atlantic to maintain geographic balance, as outlined in the Coral Reef Conservation Act of 2000. Awards
  will range from $15,000-$50,000.

                                                    Description
NOAA delivers funding and technical expertise to restore coastal and marine habitats. These habitats support valuable fisheries
and protected resources, improve the quality of our water, provide recreational opportunities for the public's use and enjoyment
and buffer our coastal communities from the impacts of storms and sea level rise. Partnerships funded through NOAA have
strong on-the-ground habitat restoration components that provide social and economic benefits in addition to long-term
ecological habitat improvements that benefit NOAA trust resources. Through this solicitation, NOAA seeks to openly compete
funding available for multi-year national and regional habitat restoration Partnerships. Partnerships will result in implementation
of a wide-range of individual habitat restoration projects, from locally-driven, grass-roots projects that emphasize stewardship
and hands-on restoration, to mid-scale, watershed level projects that yield significant ecological and socio-economic benefits.
NOAA envisions working jointly on such Partnerships through its Community-based Restoration Program (CRP) to identify,
evaluate, fund, and administer projects that offer this range of ecological, socio- economic and stewardship benefits to coastal
watershed communities. This document describes the types of habitat restoration Partnerships that NOAA envisions
establishing, portrays the qualities that NOAA deems desirable in such Partnerships, and describes criteria under which
applications will be evaluated for funding consideration. Partnership applications selected through this announcement will be
implemented through a multi-year cooperative agreement, and will ultimately involve joint selection of multiple community-based
habitat restoration projects funded as sub-awards made through the Partner organization. Funding of approximately $10 million
is expected to be available to establish habitat restoration Partnerships in 2010, with annual funding anticipated to maintain
them for up to 3 years duration. Requests for funding to establish Partnerships typically exceed the funds available for this
purpose and the selection process will be highly competitive. Typical Partnership awards will range from $500,000 to
$1,000,000 per year. Funds will be administered by the NOAA Restoration Center within NOAA Fisheries Office of Habitat
Conservation. This is not a request for individual community-based habitat restoration project proposals.

The NOAA Marine Debris Program (MDP), authorized in the Marine Debris Research, Prevention, and Reduction Act (MDRPR
Act, 33 U.S.C. 1951 et seq.), provides funding to catalyze the implementation of locally driven, community-based marine debris
prevention, assessment and removal projects that will benefit coastal habitat, waterways, and NOAA trust resources. Projects
funded through the MDP have strong on-the-ground habitat components involving the removal of marine debris and derelict
fishing gear, as well as activities that provide social benefits for people and their communities in addition to long-term ecological
habitat improvements for NOAA trust resources. Through this solicitation the MDP identifies marine debris removal projects,
strengthens the development and implementation of habitat restoration through the removal of marine debris within
communities, and fosters awareness of the effects of marine debris to further the conservation of living marine resource habitats
across a wide geographic area. Proposals selected for funding through this solicitation will be implemented through a
cooperative agreement. Funding of up to $2,000,000 is expected to be available for Community-based Marine Debris Removal
Project Grants in FY 2010. The NOAA MDP anticipates that typical

NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is soliciting Atlantic Sea Scallop (scallop) research proposals to utilize
scallop Total Allowable Catch (TAC) and Days-at-Sea (DAS) that have been set-aside by the New England Fishery
Management Council (Council) to fund scallop research endeavors through the 2010 Atlantic Sea Scallop Research Set-Aside
(RSA) Program (March 1, 2010-February 28, 2011). No Federal funds are provided for research under this notification. Rather,
proceeds generated from the sale of scallops harvested under a set-aside quota are used to fund research activities and
compensate vessels that participate in research activities and/or harvest set- aside quota. Projects funded under the Scallop
RSA Program must enhance the knowledge of the scallop fishery resource or contribute to the body of information on which
scallop management decisions are made. Priority will be given to scallop research proposals that investigate research priorities
identified by the Council, which are detailed under the Program Priorities section of the full funding opportunity announcement.

The NOAA Open Rivers Initiative (ORI) provides funding and technical assistance to catalyze the implementation of locally-
driven projects to remove dams and other river barriers, in order to benefit living marine and coastal resources, particularly
diadromous fish. Projects funded through the Open Rivers Initiative must feature strong on-the-ground habitat restoration
components that foster economic, educational, and social benefits for citizens and their communities in addition to long-term
ecological habitat improvements for NOAA trust resources. Proposals selected for funding through this solicitation will be
implemented through a cooperative agreement. Funding of up to $6,000,000 is expected to be available for ORI Project Grants
in FY 2010. The NOAA Restoration Center within the Office of Habitat Conservation will administer this grant initiative, and
anticipates that typical awards will range from $200,000 to $750,000. Although a select few may fall outside of this range,
project proposals requesting less than $100,000 or greater than $3,000,000 will not be accepted or reviewed.

NOAA's National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) is soliciting monkfish research proposals to utilize 500 Monkfish Days-at-
Sea (DAS) that have been set-aside by the New England Fishery Management and Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Councils
(Councils) to fund monkfish research endeavors through the 2010 Monkfish Research Set-Aside (RSA) Program (May 1, 2010-
April 30, 2011). No Federal funds are provided for research under this notification. Rather, proceeds generated from the sale of
monkfish harvested during a set-aside DAS is used to fund research activities and compensate vessels that participate in
research activities and/or harvest set-aside quota. Projects funded under the Monkfish RSA Program must enhance the
knowledge of the monkfish fishery resource or contribute to the body of information on which monkfish management decisions
are made. Priority will be given to monkfish research proposals that investigate research priorities identified by the Councils and
which are detailed under the Program Priorities section of this announcement.

                                                    Description
    The NOAA/NASA/DOD Joint Center for Satellite Data Assimilation (JCSDA) is a distributed center that engages units of NASA:
    Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Earth-Sun Exploration Division; NOAA: NESDIS Center for Satellite Applications and
    Research (STAR) , National Weather Service (NWS) National Centers for Environmental Prediction (NCEP)/Environmental
    Modeling Center (EMC), and Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR); US Navy: Oceanographer of the Navy and
    the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL); and US Air Force Air Weather Agency. The Joint Center's goal is to accelerate the
    abilities of NOAA, DOD, and NASA to ingest and effectively use the large volumes of data from current satellite-based
    instruments and planned satellite missions over the next 10 years. JCSDA activities are divided into infrastructure development
    and proposal-driven scientific projects. Infrastructure activities will focus initially on the development and maintenance of a
    scientific backbone for the JCSDA, including a community-based radiative transfer model, a community-based surface
    emissivity model, and numerical prediction systems for performing assimilation experiments with real and simulated
    observations from new and future satellite instruments. The proposal-driven scientific projects are the primary mechanism for
    accelerating the transition of research and technological advances in remote sensing and data assimilation into the operational
    and product driven weather, ocean, climate, and environmental prediction systems. This mechanism also aims at improving
    community radiative transfer models and surface emissivity models, and characterizing the error covariances related to forecast
    models, radiative transfer models and satellite observations. This research is directed toward acceleration of the science of
    satellite data assimilation in numerical weather forecast models and in ocean and land surface models used for climate
    prediction and operational ocean applications. A primary measure of potential impact in this solicitation will be the acceleration
    of satellite data usage into NOAA, and DoD forecast systems, and the improvement of forecasts from those systems. This
    opportunity supports the JCSDA short-term goal to "contribute to making the forecast skill of the operational NWP systems of
    the JCSDA partners internationally competitive by assimilating the largest possible number of satellite observations in the most
    effective way". It also supports the JCSDA partners individual missions, including NOAA's mission goal of Weather and Water -
    Serve Society's Needs for Weather and Water Information, as well as NASA's mission to understand and protect our home
    planet and DoD's Air-Force and Navy respective missions. Research supporting development of the radiative transfer models
    used in assimilation applications should be in fast radiative transfer codes such as those used in real-time Numerical Weather
    Prediction (NWP). Broader research topics in data assimilation, data impact, and improvement of radiative schemes for data
    assimilation applications that do not have the potential for direct application to real-time NWP or other operational
    environmental prediction systems are of less interest for this announcement.

                                                    Description
Proposals for exploration and discovery of significant maritime heritage sites are the priority. Submerged, previously subaerial,
landscapes, shipwrecks, and other maritime cultural sites are typical focus subjects of the program. Proposals will emphasize
the early phases of field archaeology: searching, locating, evaluating or inventorying sites. This Announcement does not invite
proposals to support later phases of archaeological research, such as intensive site excavations, and major conservation
projects. All applicants must convincingly describe: The potential archaeological significance of their site(s), and their
importance to American or world history; how their research fits within the realm of exploration; why their methodologies are
innovative and make the most economical use of current marine technology. NOAA s Office of Ocean Exploration and
Research (OER) is seeking pre-proposals and full proposals to support its mission, consistent with NOAA's Strategic Plan
(http://www.nrc.noaa.gov), to search, investigate, and document marine archaeological resources. OER is seeking proposals for
exploration and discovery of significant maritime heritage sites, including submerged, previously subaerial, landscapes,
shipwrecks, aircraft, and other maritime cultural sites. Competitive OER proposals will be bold, innovative and interdisciplinary
in their approach and objectives. Proposals will emphasize the early phases of field archaeology: searching, locating, evaluating
or inventorying sites. Marine Archaeology projects may be conducted in any of the world's oceans, coasts or Great Lakes
regions, on any suitable platform, vessel or other charter.

                                                     Description
Office of Program Planning and Integration anticipate making available up to $200,000 to support projects that advance priority
climate engagement strategies throughout NOAA. The climate engagement mini-grants will be awarded only to proposals
endorsed jointly by the NOAA Regional Collaboration Team Lead and the Sea Grant Liaison to the NOAA Regional
Collaboration Team (selected among the Sea Grant Directors programs in the region). Awards will be made as interoffice
transfers to NOAA entities and cooperative agreements to non-Federal entities, or a combination of interoffice transfers and
cooperative agreements for projects that support both NOAA and non- Federal entities. Although other federal, state, tribal,
Native Hawaiian, other native cultures, academic and non-profit or non- governmental organizations can act as partners, the
Project Principal Investigator of the grant must be a NOAA Federal employee or a Sea Grant employee. Requests for individual
projects may not exceed $25,000. Up to eight mini-grants of up to $25,000 are expected to be awarded through a competitive
process, subject to the availability of funds. This competition supports four NOAA Program Goals: ``Protect, Restore and
Manage the Use of Coastal and Ocean Resources Through Ecosystem-Based Management''; ``Understand Climate Variability
and Change To Enhance Society's Ability To Plan and Respond''; Serve Society's Needs for Weather and Water Information'';
and ``Support the Nation's Commerce With Information for Safe, Efficient, and Environmentally Sound Transportation''.

                                                      Description
  The purpose of this document is to advise the public that NOAA is soliciting research proposals for projects of 3 to 5 years in
  duration for development of modeling and mapping tools to better understand and predict the impacts of sea level rise on
  coastal ecosystems, including ecologically and economically valuable natural resources, to support proactive coastal
  management and mitigation decisions. The area of interest includes the coastal ecosystems in the northern Gulf of Mexico,
  ranging from the eastern boundary of the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve to the western extent of the
  Mississippi coast. Projects should be interdisciplinary, multiple investigator, and well integrated studies designed to develop
  capabilities for understanding, predicting, and mitigating the effects of long term sea level rise. Funding is contingent upon the
  availability of Fiscal Year 2010 Federal appropriations. It is anticipated that final recommendations for funding under this
  announcement will be made in early calendar year 2010, and that projects funded under this announcement will have a July
  2010, start date. Electronic Access: Background information about NOAA's efforts in the Ecological Effects of Sea Level Rise

The National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) consists of estuarine areas of the United States and its territories
which are designated and managed for research and educational purposes. Each reserve within the system is chosen to reflect
regional differences and to include a variety of ecosystem types in accordance with the classification scheme of the national
program as presented in 15 CFR Part 921. Each reserve supports a wide range of beneficial uses of ecological, economic,
recreational, and aesthetic values which are dependent upon the maintenance of a healthy ecosystem. The sites provide
habitats for a wide range of ecologically and commercially important species of fish, shellfish, birds, and other aquatic and
terrestrial wildlife. Each reserve has been designed to ensure its effectiveness as a conservation unit and as a site for long-
term research and monitoring. As part of a national system, the reserves collectively provide an excellent opportunity to address
research questions and estuarine management issues of national significance. For detailed descriptions of the sites, refer to the
NERR Web site at http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-

                                                    Description
The purpose of this document is to advise the public that NOAA is soliciting proposals for the interagency Ecology and
Oceanography of Harmful Algal Blooms Program (ECOHAB), the NOAA Monitoring and Event Response for Harmful Algal
Blooms Program (MERHAB), and the NOAA Prevention, Control, and Mitigation of Harmful Algal Blooms Program (PCMHAB).
ECOHAB Objectives ECOHAB aims to develop quantitative understanding of HABs and, where applicable, their toxins in
relation to the surrounding environment with the intent of providing new information and tools, predictive models and forecasts,
and prevention strategies and to develop models of trophic transfer of toxins, knowledge of biosynthesis and metabolism of
toxins, and assessment of impacts of toxins on higher trophic levels. Information in these areas, in turn, supports a critical goal
of the ECOHAB program, the development of reliable models to forecast bloom development, persistence, toxicity, and impacts.
Research results will be used directly to guide management of coastal resources to reduce HAB development, impacts, and
future threats and will feed into other HAB programs for development of tools to improve HAB management and response.
MERHAB Objectives The principal objective of MERHAB is to build capacity of local, state, and tribal governments, and the
private sector, for less costly and more precise and comprehensive monitoring of HAB cells and toxins, and for responding to
HAB events. With these advances, State programs will be better able to take preventative actions (e.g. increase monitoring
efforts, close shellfish beds, warn affected communities) to safeguard the public health, local economies, and fisheries. Further
advancements will assist the wildlife health communities respond to HAB-related mortalities. As a result of the MERHAB
Program, managers will be able to mitigate the expanding HAB problems in their coastal regions and be better positioned,
especially during difficult state fiscal climates, to request long-term support from local, state, regional or Federal funding
sources. PCMHAB Objectives The PCM HAB program will transition promising technologies and strategies for preventing,
controlling, or mitigating HABs and their impacts from development through demonstration and technology transfer for field
application by end-users. The technologies will arise from HAB research conducted by the two existing national HAB programs,
ECOHAB and MERHAB, or other research programs which conduct some HAB research. The purpose is to develop new tools
to improve HAB management and response.

                                                    Description
The purpose of the Defense Production Act (DPA) Title III Program is to create, maintain, modernize, or expand the production
capacities of domestic sources for critical components, technology items and industrial resources essential for national defense
when such production capacity would otherwise be insufficient for meeting national security needs. The definition of domestic
sources as defined in the Defense Production Act of 1950 is as follows: "A business concern that performs in the United States
or Canada substantially all of the research and development, engineering, manufacturing, and production activities required of
such business concern under a contract with the United States relating to a critical component or a critical technology item; and
that procures from business concerns (described as above) substantially all or any components and assemblies required under
a contract with the United States relating to a critical component or critical technology item." A key objective of the Title III
Program is to accelerate the transition of technologies from R&D to affordable production and insertion into defense systems.
The Act authorizes a wide range of financial incentives including purchases (e.g., payments for: qualification testing, materials,
product samples, engineering effort for production scale up activities), purchase commitments (i.e., advance guarantee of
minimum sales), development of substitutes, and purchase or lease of advanced manufacturing equipment for installation in
Government or privately owned facilities. The Government contemplates that this project will last approximately 18 to 24 months
including 3 months for review and approval of the final report. In addition, a no-cost equipment monitoring phase of up to 60
months after completion of the technical effort is anticipated.

Dept. of the Army -- USAMRAA


                                                   Description
The PH/TBI Research Program Advanced Technology/Therapeutic Development Award is intended to support the assessment
of scientific and/or military field deployment feasibility for promising new products, pharmacologic agents (drugs or biologics),
behavioral interventions, devices, clinical guidance, and/or emerging approaches and technologies. These awards are expected
to yield potential products, approaches, or technologies for the treatment, prevention, detection, and/or diagnosis of PH issues
and/or TBI. The products developed may be pharmacologic agents (drugs, biological), cognitive/behavioral interventions,
devices, or clinical guidance. Military relevance is a key feature of this award. All applications must specifically and clearly
address the military relevance of the proposed research. Each PI must provide a transition plan (including funding and
resources) showing how the product will progress to clinical trials and/or delivery to the military market after the successful
completion of this PH/TBI Research Program award. The overall goal of this award mechanism is to accelerate the introduction
of improved therapies, treatments, devices, or technologies for PH/TBI into the clinical setting. Examples of the types of
research that may be supported include, but are not limited to: • Collection and analysis of data for developing and validating
clinical guidance. • Developing new behavioral or cognitive interventions. DOD PH/TBI Research Program Advanced
Technology/Therapeutic Development Award 6 • Testing new therapeutic modalities (agents, delivery systems, chemical
modification of lead compounds) using established or validated novel preclinical systems. • Comparative activity/efficacy testing
to define a single lead agent from a limited library of candidates. • Designing and implementing full-scale, pilot Good
Manufacturing Practice (GMP) production of therapeutics and/or delivery systems for use in advanced preclinical and initial
clinical trials. • Developing pharmacologic agents through the elements of adsorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion, and
toxicity (ADMET). • Developing pharmacologic agents to Investigational New Drug (IND) stage for initiation of Phase I clinical
trials. • Developing prototype devices for diagnosis or treatment to Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) stage for initiation of
Phase I clinical trials. • Generation of safety and/or efficacy data (e.g., Phase I or Phase I/II clinical studies) on therapeutics and
devices in clinical trials. • Development and validation of assays and reagents required to measure biological responses and
molecular endpoints. • Developing and validating computational models. • Optimizing diagnostic or treatment devices for field
deployment. Preference will be given to proposals that include preliminary and/or published data relevant to the PH/TBI topic
area and the proposed project, but omission of these will not be a disqualifying factor. Partnering PI Option: As a method to
support an accelerated assessment of scientific and/or military market feasibility for promising new products, devices, and/or
emerging technologies, the FY09 PH/TBI Research Program is offering a Partnering PI option for this award mechanism.
Development of the research plan should involve a reciprocal flow of ideas and information with equal intellectual input from all
partners into the design of a single research project. For example, a proposed project in which a partner merely supplies
support services, tissue samples, or access to patients will not meet the intent of this option. This award option is structured to
accommodate up to three PIs. One member of the team will be identified as the Initiating PI, who will be responsible for the
majority of the administrative tasks associated with application submission. The other members will be identified as the
Partnering PI(s) and will need to complete administrative tasks associated with application submission. Separate awards will be
made to each PI’s institution. One Initiating and up to two Partnering PIs may be designated. Additional collaborators may be
included, but they will not be designated as PIs. Multidisciplinary and multi-institutional projects are allowed. If the project is
multi-institutional, PIs should include plans for communication between investigators at each institution. Additionally,
participating institutions must be willing to resolve potential intellectual and material property issues, and to remove any barriers
that might interfere with achieving high levels of cooperation to ensure successful completion of this award. DOD PH/TBI
Research Program Advanced Technology/Therapeutic Development Award 7 Submissions that include clinical research
involving humans should: • Describe clearly defined and appropriate endpoints for the proposed clinical research • Clearly
articulate the statistical analysis plan • Discuss the potential impact of the study results for patients with the specified
disease/condition • Include a named study coordinator who will guide the clinical protocol through Institutional Review Board
(IRB), Human Subjects Research Review Board (HSRRB), and other regulatory approval processes, coordinate activities from
all sites participating in the trial, and coordinate participant accrual Multi-institutional research: If the proposed research is multi-
institutional, plans for communication and data transfer between the collaborating institutions, as well as how specimens and/or
           imaging products obtained during the study will be handled, should be included in the Project Narrative. A separate intellectual
           and material property plan agreed upon by all participating institutions is also required for multi-institutional research.
           Encouraged DOD collaboration and alignment: Military relevance is a key feature of this award. Therefore, PIs are strongly
           encouraged to collaborate, integrate, and/or align their research projects with military and/or VA research laboratories and
           programs. The following websites may be useful in identifying information about ongoing DOD areas of research interest within

           http://www.acq.osd.mil/ Use of Military Populations: Describe the military population(s) to be used for the proposed study, if
           applicable. Coordination of access to various military populations is described below. 1. Active Duty, National Guard, Reserve
           troops, and/or military patient populations (not CENTCOM Area of Responsibility): Unless the PI has an already established
           Service member population, access to Active Duty, National Guard, or Reserve troops must be coordinated through the
           CDMRP. PIs who do not have a previously established study population should not contact unit Commanders at this time or
           during preparation of the proposal submission. If selected for funding, the PI will be provided guidance on how to obtain access
           to the appropriate population. 2. CENTCOM Area of Responsibility military populations: Access to military populations in these
           areas is very limited and will be coordinated through the CDMRP as described above. Research conducted using military
           populations in Iraq is conducted with oversight by the Multi-National Force-Iraq (MNF-I). PIs that are outside of this system and
           submit a research proposal designed to recruit patients within MNF-I must coordinate with the in-theater Deployed Combat
           Casualty Research Team charged with facilitating an in-theater review, and be approved by the MNF-I Command and the MNF-
           I designated Institutional Review Board (IRB). The same is true for research conducted in Afghanistan in the US Forces-
           Afghanistan (USFOR-A) Area of Responsibility. PIs who are outside of this system and submit a research proposal designed to
           recruit patients within USFOR-A must coordinate with the in-theatre Deployed Combat Casualty Research Team charged with
           facilitating an in-theatre review, and be approved by the USFOR-A Command and the USFOR-A designated IRB. If selected for
           funding, CDMRP will assist with guidance on how to obtain the required in-theater approvals. Given the constraints of wartime
           operations, investigators without an ongoing collaboration with an appropriate military investigator should strongly consider
           alternatives to conducting in-theater research. DOD-supported human subjects research can only be conducted by institutions
           (including those in-theater) with approved Federal Assurances of Compliance from the Human Research Protection Office
           (HRPO). It is strongly suggested that proposals necessitating the use of this population involve civilian and non-deployed
           military populations as an alternative. DOD PH/TBI Research Program Advanced Technology/Therapeutic Development Award
           9 3. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Centers patient populations: Access to patient populations from VA Medical
           Centers or use of information from VA data systems must be coordinated by the PI. PIs who submit a research proposal
           designed to recruit patients from a VA Medical Center or use information from VA data systems, and who do not have an
           appointment at one of the VA Medical Centers, must include a collaborator with a VA appointment. This collaborator must be
           willing to assume the role of PI for the VA component of the research. Use of human subjects and human biological substances:
           All Department of Defense (DOD)-funded research involving human subjects and human biological substances must be
           reviewed and approved by the USAMRMC Office of Research Protections (ORP), HRPO, in addition to local IRBs. The HRPO
           is mandated to comply with specific laws and directives governing all research involving human subjects that is conducted or
           supported by the DOD. These laws and directives are rigorous and detailed, and will require information in addition to that
           supplied to the local review board. Allow a minimum of 6 months for regulatory review and approval processes for studies
           involving human subjects. Refer to the Application Instructions & General Information, Appendix 6, for detailed information.

                                                              Description
           The key initiative of the Collaborative Translational Science Award is to encourage collaborations among clinicians and
           laboratory scientists that accelerate the movement of promising ideas in melanoma and other skin cancers into clinical
           applications. This award is intended to support both new and established scientists across a broad spectrum of disciplines in
           research projects that are likely to make a major impact on melanoma and other skin cancers for those service members (and
           their families) deployed in areas of high exposure. No other topic areas will be allowed. The FY09 PRCRP Collaborative
           Translational Science Award requests applications from these Focus Areas only: Research into melanoma and other skin
           cancers related to deployments of service members to areas of high exposure by: Understanding molecular and
           immunological effects of UV at the level of the cell and at the level of the human host. The genetic epidemiology and
           increased susceptibility to melanoma and other skincancers.DOD Peer Reviewed Cancer Research Program Collaborative
           Translational Science Award 3Applications to the FY09 PRCRP Collaborative Translational Science Award will be rated on their
           responsiveness to these Focus Areas. It is the responsibility of the applicant to clearly and explicitly articulate the project’s
           military relevance. The Collaborative Translational Research Award supports the development of translational research
           collaborations among two or three independent investigators (known as partners) to address one of the Focus Areas in
           melanoma and other skin cancers in a manner relevant to military service that would be less readily achievable through
           separate efforts. At least one partner must have experience either in melanoma/other skin cancer research or in
           melanoma/other skin cancer patient care. It should be clear that all partners have equal intellectual input into the design of the
           research project. A proposed project in which one of the partners merely supplies tissue samples or access to patients will not
           meet the intent of this mechanism. Observations that drive a research idea may be derived from a laboratory discovery,
           population based studies, or a clinician’s firsthand knowledge of patients and anecdotal data. The ultimate goal of translational
           research is to move an observation forward into the clinical application. The Collaborative Translational Science Award supports
           preclinical studies in animal models and human subjects and human anatomical substances, correlative studies that are
           associated with an existing clinical trial, and projects that develop clinical endpoints for clinical trials. Developing the research
           plan must involve a reciprocal flow of ideas and information within the research team (from bench to bedside, and from bedside
           to bench).

  The OCRP Ovarian Cancer Academy Dean Award supports visionary individuals who are established ovarian cancer
  researchers with a strong record of mentoring and a commitment to leadership. In addition to leading the Ovarian Cancer
  Academy, the Academy Dean will be recognized with the life-long title of Department of Defense (DOD) Ovarian Cancer
  Research Professorship. The Ovarian Cancer Academy is envisioned as a unique, interactive virtual academy that will provide
  intensive mentoring, national networking, and a peer group for junior faculty in their pursuit to become successful, highly
  productive ovarian cancer researchers. The Ovarian Cancer Academy will be multi-institutional and will consist of five
  individually awarded Early-Career Investigators and their designated mentors. Each Early-Career Investigator will be within the
  first three years of his/her first faculty position (or equivalent) and his/her designated mentor will be an experienced ovarian
  cancer researcher with a strong record of mentoring young investigators. The OCRP Integration Panel (IP), Program Manager,
  and Grant Manager will assume the role of an external advisory board (EAB) to the Academy. The EAB will plan, organize, and
  host an annual one-day workshop and a biennial three-day conference for presentation of research, networking, and developing
  collaborative efforts by all Academy members. It is anticipated that participation in the Ovarian Cancer Academy will facilitate
  scientific collaborations, faculty advancement, as well as career progression and the receipt of independent peer reviewed
  funding for Early-Career Investigators.

                                                    Description
  The LCRP Concept Award mechanism supports the exploration of a highly innovative new concept or untested theory that
  addresses an important problem relevant to lung cancer. The Concept Award is not intended to support a logical progression of
  an already established research project but, instead, allows Principal Investigators (PIs) the opportunity to pursue serendipitous
  observations. This award mechanism supports high-risk studies that have the potential to reveal entirely new avenues for
  investigation. Proposals must describe how the new idea will enhance the existing knowledge of lung cancer or create an
  entirely new avenue for investigation. Submissions from and partnerships with investigators at Military Medical Treatment
  Facilities, Military labs, and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Medical Centers and research laboratories are
  encouraged. Research completed through a Concept Award may generate sufficient preliminary data to enable the PI to
  prepare a proposal for future research. See the Program Announcement for the full Funding Opportunity Description.

                                                              Description
           The goal of Area of Interest 1 is to develop and demonstrate a 50% improvement in overall freight efficiency on a heavy-duty
           Class 8 tractor-trailer measured in ton-miles per gallon. This improvement will be achieved through the application of advanced
           vehicle system technologies and advanced engine technologies. At least 20% of the improvement will be through the
           development of an engine capable of achieving 50% Brake Thermal Efficiency (BTE). Over the 3 to 5 year period of this activity,
           the selected participants will develop, test, and ultimately demonstrate these advanced technologies on a full-scale vehicle. A
           pathway to compliance with prevailing federal safety and environmental regulations must be shown. Candidate vehicle system
           technologies may include reductions in aerodynamic drag, vehicle mass, and rolling resistance, and other technologies as
           appropriate. Electrical or mechanical drivetrain hybridization, including energy storage/regeneration and main engine idle and
           other ancillary load reductions, may also be considered. In an effort to bring the best possible resources to bear on this
           transformational vehicle development, teams are expected to include but are not limited to a vehicle OEM, engine
           manufacturers and critical suppliers. The project will be organized in phases with well-defined stage gates at the end of each
           phase. An in-depth review will be held at the end of each phase and a determination made concerning continuing the project
           into the next stage. Changes to DOE program priorities as well as the current state of technology and the marketplace will be
           factors considered when making decisions to proceed. The goal of Area of Interest 2 is to accelerate the development of cost-
           competitive engine and powertrain systems for light-duty vehicles capable of attaining breakthrough thermal efficiencies while
           meeting future emissions standards. Development of the engine and powertrain system can include improvements to in-cylinder
           combustion, engine mechanics, waste heat recovery, friction reduction, emission control, fuels, materials, electrification, and
           reduced ancillary load requirements. The engine system can be designed to accommodate a hybrid system, CVT or other
           advanced transmission. The project will be organized in phases with well-defined phase gates at the end of each phase. Over
           the three-to-five year period of this activity, the selected participants will develop, test and eventually demonstrate these
           advanced technologies and the associated efficiency gains on an engine dynamometer and full-scale vehicle. Emissions will be
           measured to show compliance. Technologies that are compatible with or can support future fuels and are adaptable to bio-fuels
           with relatively minor modifications will be taken into consideration during the comprehensive merit evaluation process.
           Achievement of the stated fuel economy goals may require improvements to the entire powertrain system although engine
           system efficiency improvements will play a significant role in this effort. In order to bring the best possible resources to bear on
           this problem, appropriate teaming arrangements among suppliers, national labs, universities, and vehicle OEMs are
           encouraged. Proposed activity coincides with the multi-year program plan and Fiscal Year 2010 to 2014 budgets.

           LETTERS OF INTENT ARE REQUESTED NO LATER THAN July 24, 2009. PLEASE SEE PAGE 18 OF THE FOA FOR
           DETAILS.*** The purpose of this amendment is to 1) re-open the FOA originally issued on August 11, 2008, 2) provide a
           second Application Due Date (closing date) of August 24, 2009 at 8:00 PM Eastern Time, and 3) make associated
           programmatic and administrative changes. Additionally, this amendment makes certain changes to the Model Cooperative
           Agreement.*** The Clean Coal Power Initiative (CCPI) is a cost-shared collaboration between the Government and industry to
           increase investment in low-emission coal technology by demonstrating advanced coal-based, power generation technologies,
           consistent with the Energy Policy Act of 2005, Public Law 109-58 (EPACT 2005). The CCPI goal is to accelerate the readiness
           of advanced coal technologies for commercial deployment, thus ensuring that the United States has clean, reliable, and
           affordable electricity and power. By overcoming technical risks associated with bringing advanced technology to the point of
           commercial readiness, the CCPI accelerates the development of new coal technologies for power and hydrogen production,
           contributes to proving the feasibility of integrating carbon dioxide (CO2) management and power production and facilitates the
           movement of technologies into the marketplace that are emerging from the core research and development activities. CCPI
           directly supports the Climate Change Technology Program to reduce emissions of CO2, a greenhouse gas. For this
           Announcement, DOE¿s specific objective is to demonstrate advanced coal-based technologies that capture and sequester, or
           put to beneficial use, CO2 emissions. DOE¿s goals are to demonstrate at commercial scale in a commercial setting,
           technologies that (1) can achieve a minimum of 50% CO2 capture efficiency and make progress toward a target CO2 capture
           efficiency of 90% in a gas stream containing at least 10% CO2 by volume, (2) make progress toward capture and sequestration
           goal of less than 10% increase in the cost of electricity (COE) for gasification systems and less than 35% for combustion and
           oxycombustion systems all as compared to current (2008) practice, and (3) capture and sequester or put to beneficial use a
           minimum of 300,000 tons per year of CO2 emissions using a thirty day running average to determine if the project successfully
           meets the CO2 capture efficiency and the capture and sequestration or beneficial use rate requirements of this Announcement.
           DOE is currently developing large scale field tests of geologic CO2 sequestration in the U.S., on the order of 1 million tons of
           CO2 per year under a separate program. DOE is interested in allowing demonstration projects under CCPI to integrate with the
           sequestration field tests, which may already be fully operational by the time the CCPI projects come on-line. A project performer
           could, for example, attempt to integrate a CCPI project with a sequestration field test to supply lower-cost CO2, and reduce the
           cost of either or both projects. This would require careful cooperation or integration of the management of both projects.

                                                              Description
           Full FOA Title is Recovery Act: Carbon Capture and Sequestration from Industrial Sources and Innovative Concepts for
           Beneficial CO2 Use The CO2 Capture and Sequestration (CCS) and CO2 use is a cost-shared collaboration between the
           Government and industry to increase investment in clean industrial technologies and sequestration projects. In accordance with
           the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and Section 703 of Public Law 110¿140, for this Funding Opportunity
           Announcement, DOE¿s two specific objectives, identified as Technology Areas, are to demonstrate: (1) Large-scale industrial
           CCS projects from industrial sources and (2) Innovative concepts for beneficial CO2 use. The Applicants shall clearly identify
           the technology area under which the application is being submitted. Technology Area 1 - Large-scale industrial CCS projects
           from industrial sources: The objective is to demonstrate advanced technologies that capture and sequester carbon dioxide
           emissions from industrial sources into underground formations. The large-scale CCS projects include integration of CO2
           capture, transportation and sequestration incorporating comprehensive monitoring, verification accounting (MVA). The projects
           may include plant efficiency improvements for integration with CO2 capture technology. The industrial sources include, but are
           not limited to, cement plants, chemical plants, refineries, steel and aluminum plants, manufacturing facilities, and power plants
           using opportunity fuels (petroleum coke, municipal waste, etc.). Plants with electric power output greater than 50% of total
           energy output that operate on more than 55% coal as a feedstock are ineligible. The sequestration opportunities include deep
           saline formations, and deep geologic systems including basalts, operating oil and gas fields, depleted oil and gas fields, and
           unmineable coal seams. The CO2 sequestration commercial benefits include enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and enhanced
           methane recovery from unmineable coal seams. DOE¿s objective is that Recipients are able to operate at commercial scale in
           an industrial setting, technologies that make progress toward capture and sequestration of 75% of CO2 from the treated stream
           comprising at least 10% CO2 by volume that would otherwise be emitted to the atmosphere and at a scale sufficient to evaluate
           full impact of the CO2 capture technology on plant operations, economics, and performance. Additionally, the objective is to
           demonstrate geologic sequestration options in a variety of geologic settings in order to evaluate costs, operational processes,
           and the technical performance. DOE¿s target is for one million tons per year of CO2 emissions from each plant to be captured
           and sequestered. The evaluation process will give greater weights to applications for projects that capture and sequester
           amounts of CO2 approaching or exceeding DOE¿s Industrial Carbon Capture and Sequestration (ICCS) target of one million
           tons per plant per year by 2015 as an integral component of commercial operation. Long-term commitments from the suppliers
           or purchasers or users of CO2 would strengthen an application. Coordination with a large scale sequestration test, including
           EOR, is one way to demonstrate participation by a long term purchaser, or supplier of CO2, although other approaches to
           demonstrating sequestration will be given equal consideration in the merit review process.

           The National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) Office of Proliferation Detection (NA-221) within the Office of
           Nonproliferation Research and Development (NA-22) is soliciting applications for R D to improve national capabilities to detect
           the proliferation of nuclear weapons. Eligibility will be restricted to Institutions of Higher Learning and awards will be executed
           as grants. The objective of this announcement is to enhance United States (U.S.) capabilities to detect and monitor foreign
           nuclear proliferation, strengthen international safeguards, and support U.S. government efforts to reduce the risk of the
           malevolent use of high priority IAEA Category 1 and 2 radioactive sources. This will be achieved through advances in a broad
           spectrum of enabling technologies that advance the state-of-the-art in technical means for the early detection and monitoring of
           foreign nuclear weapons programs. Of interest is basic and applied research that improves the detection and assessment of
           activities indicative of the development, transport, and storage of special nuclear material, fabricated components, and weapons
           and technologies that safeguard nuclear materials and activities. Research products resulting from this announcement shall be
           used to develop and validate technical knowledge for transfer to U.S. government acquisition programs and the U.S. industrial
           base to support national security missions. An individual application should be directed to only one topic area, but the applicant
           may submit applications in more than one topic area.

                                                      Description
  A link to the full Funding Opportunity Announcement is found by scrolling to the bottom of this page. Topic 1 DOE is looking for
  the Solar America Cities to scale-up innovative programs and concepts so they can be tested in a broader marketplace;
  thereby, increasing the likelihood of replication in other U.S. cities. Such an approach recognizes the city’s role as an important
  end user of electricity, as a key intermediary to other end users within their jurisdiction, and as a regulatory entity. DOE expects
  award recipient cities to develop projects that support their city-wide solar implementation plans. Projects must tackle specific
  barriers important to urban solar and must be replicable at some level among fellow Solar America Cities, other cities and local
  governments, states, and internationally. Topic 2 intends to address the workforce development needs of the solar industry,
  both for grid-tied PV systems in residential, commercial, and utility markets, and for SHC systems. Funded activities are not
  intended to support off-grid PV applications. The overall goal of this FOA is to promote an increase in the quality and availability
  of instruction relating to the installation of PV and SHC systems. ¿This is a restricted eligibility. ¿ Topic 1: In accordance with 10
  CFR 600.6(b) eligibility for award is restricted to the existing 25 Solar America Cities awarded under the FY07 Solar City
  Strategic Partnerships Funding Opportunity Announcement DE-PS36-07GO97007 and the FY08 Solar City Strategic
  Partnerships Funding Opportunity Announcement DE-PS36-08GO98003. Topic 2: is open to all domestic entities and
  institutions. Use the Quick Start Guide to assist you with FedConnect:

           MUST BE SUBMITTED THROUGH FEDCONNECT AT https://www.fedconnect.net/ TO BE CONSIDERED FOR AWARD.
           NOTE: Organizations with system-to-system capabilities with Grants.gov for their submissions may continue to use their
           systems, and their applications will be accepted in Grants.gov to be considered for award. The objectives of this FOA are to 1)
           develop the needed modeling tools and database of experience with high penetration scenarios of PV on a distribution system,
           2) develop monitoring, control and integration systems to enable cost-effective widespread deployment of small modular PV
           systems and 3) demonstrate the integration of PV and energy storage into Smart Grid applications. This will accelerate the
           placement of high levels of PV penetration into existing or newly designed distribution circuits. The achievement of these goals
           will facilitate increased growth of grid-tied PV installations, thus supporting the Solar Energy Technology Program apos;s
           (SETP) mission to accelerate widespread commercialization of clean solar energy technologies in the United States (U.S.).

                                                  Description
Purpose. The aim of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA), issued by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National
Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), and the Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS), of the National Institutes of
Health (NIH), is to promote clinical and preclinical research to determine how diet and dietary factors, including dietary
supplements, impact DNA methylation, histone posttranslational modification, noncoding RNA, and other epigenetic processes
involved in cancer prevention and development. Another important aim of this initiative is to encourage collaborations between
nutrition and epigenetic experts to study bioactive food components with cancer-preventative properties and to examine key
epigenetic events in cancer processes (e.g., carcinogen metabolism, cell division, differentiation, and apoptosis) in order to
begin to establish linkages between epigenetics, methylation patterns, and tumor incidences/behaviors. Mechanism of Support.
This FOA will use the NIH Exploratory/Developmental (R21) grant mechanism and runs in parallel with a FOA of identical
scientific scope, PA-09-234, that encourages applications under the Research Project Grant (R01) mechanism. Funds Available
and Anticipated Number of Awards. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to
application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of
awards will depend upon the mechanism, numbers, quality, duration, and costs of the applications received.

Purpose. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
(NIAID), National Institutes of Health (NIH), seeks research project grant (R01) applications from established, not-for-profit
product development Public-Private Partnerships (PD PPPs) in order to accelerate preclinical research and development of
promising preventive, therapeutic, or diagnostic tools, or vector management strategies for neglected infectious diseases. PD
PPPs should have a track record of development of interventions for neglected infectious diseases of global importance, and
highest prevalence in low income countries for which commercial markets provide insufficient incentives for product
development. These diseases include malaria, tuberculosis, Neglected Tropical Diseases (see the following link for a list of
NTDs: http://www3.niaid.nih.gov/topics/tropicalDiseases/research/examples.htm), and, where relevant, their vectors. Projects
must include milestones and timelines to support projects on various aspects of preclinical development and IND enabling
studies (e.g. validation of targets for intervention, process development, formulation, toxicology etc.) as well as a product
development plan. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the R01 grant mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated
Number of Awards. NIAID expects to award $3.7 million in total costs in response to this FOA in FY 2010; the anticipated
number of awards is 5-8.

Purpose. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is issued as an initiative of the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience
Research. The Neuroscience Blueprint is a collaborative framework through which 16 NIH Institutes, Centers and Offices jointly
support neuroscience-related research, with the aim of accelerating discoveries and reducing the burden of nervous system
disorders (for further information, see http://neuroscienceblueprint.nih.gov/). The overall purpose of this five year Human
Connectome Project (HCP) is to develop and share knowledge about the structural and functional connectivity of the human
brain. This purpose will be pursued through the following specific efforts: Existing, but cutting-edge, non-invasive imaging
technologies will be optimized and combined to acquire structural and functional in vivo data about axonal projections and
neural connections from brains of hundreds of healthy adults. Demographic data and data regarding sensory, motor, cognitive,
emotional, and social function will also be collected for each subject, as will DNA samples and blood (to establish cell lines).
Models to better understand and use these data will be developed. Connectivity patterns will be linked to existing architectonic
data. Data and models will be made available to the research community immediately via a user-friendly system to include tools
to query, organize, visualize and analyze data. Outreach activities will be conducted to engage and educate the research
community about the imaging tools, data, models, and informatics tools. After five years, these specific efforts are expected to
deliver: 1) A set of integrated, non-invasive imaging tools to obtain connectivity data from humans in vivo; 2) A high quality and
well characterized, quantitative set of human connectivity data linked to behavioral and genetic data as well as to general,
existing architectonic data, and associated models, from up to hundreds of healthy adult female and male subjects; and 3)
Rapid, user-friendly dissemination of connectivity data, models, and tools to the research community via outreach activities and
an informatics platform.

    Purpose: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute on Aging (NIA), National Institutes of
    Health, invites applications (R01) that propose the identification and development of new invertebrate models for pursuing
    biology of aging research. Applications should focus on the identification, development and characterization of new invertebrate
    models that have short lifespans. Invertebrate models with tractable genetics and genome sequence available or in progress,
    negligible or induced senescence, and tissue regeneration in adults are of particular interest to NIA. Examples of invertebrate
    models of interest include, but are not limited to planaria, hydra, rotifers, and tunicates. These invertebrate models are currently
    not well developed for aging research. Within the scope of this FOA, invertebrate models other than those mentioned above
    currently used by the biomedical research community, but not yet fully developed or realized for aging research, will be
    considered responsive to this FOA. In particular, applications that focus on the characterization of these novel models for aging
    research utilizing molecular, genetic, cellular or physiological tools and approaches to identify genes involved in longevity,
    senescence and cellular pathways in tissue homeostasis during aging are encouraged. Applications that propose work on
    invertebrate models such as Caenorhabditis elegans, Drosophila melanogaster or yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, will be
    considered non-responsive to this FOA. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the R01 grant mechanism. Funds available
    and Anticipated Number of Awards. The total amount of NIA FY2010 funds is $2.0 million. The anticipated number of NIA
    awards is 5 to 6. Each award may have up to a five year term.

    This research is directed at answering questions relating extreme floods to climate change. Does the paleoflood chronology in
    the western U.S. indicate increased frequency and magnitude during specific, long-term climate shifts, and do those floods
    correlate well with the long-term, streamflow record? To develop the chronology, this study will: (1) conduct paleoflood field
    studies, (2) utilize two geochronology techniques for validating age constraints of paleofloods, and (3) run hydraulic models to
    estimate the discharge of individual paleofloods. By combining these three methodologies, a robust paleoflood chronology can
    be developed that will reveal critical information about theoretical questions about extreme hydrologic responses to climate
    change. Further work will focus on implications for flood hydroclimatology and flood frequency analyses. Results from this study
    will be disseminated widely to various state and federal agencies, non-profit groups and floodplain managers

           The Wildlife Without Borders- Critically Endangered Animals Conservation Fund will fund projects that conserve the world’s
           most endangered species. Critically endangered species are those that face an extremely high risk of extinction in the
           immediate future. Funding is limited to vertebrate species with natural habitat ranges in developing countries. Species eligible
           for funding under one of the Multinational Species Conservation Fund programs are not eligible for funding through this
           initiative. The species excluded from this program’s funding are: Asian elephant, African elephant, rhinoceros (all species), tiger
           (all sub-species), gorilla, chimpanzee, bonobo, orangutan, gibbons (all species) and marine turtles (all species). The goal of this
           grants program is to provide funding for specific conservation actions that have a high likelihood of creating durable benefits to
           specific species facing immediate threat of extinction, such as:- Protection of at-risk populations- Veterinary/wildlife health
           interventions- Public education/outreach- Applied and well-focused research that would lead to immediate action- Activities
           related to execution of species survival plans- Conservation and management of critical habitat- Strengthening local capacity to
           conserve the target species- Actions addressing unsustainable exploitation- Efforts to mitigate or stop wildlife-human conflict-
           Rehabilitation and rescue

                                                   Description
This announcement is for U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) Region 9 FY 2009 project support to maintain, enhance, and
better understand the ecology and habitats of migratory bird species. As justification for Single Source Determination, in
accordance with Department of Interior Guidance (505 DM 2.14), USFWS Region 9 provides Notice of Intent to make a single
source award in the amount of $10,000 to the New Jersey Audubon Society for the support of aerial surveys of shorebirds, and
Semipalmated Sandpipers in particular, on the northern coast of South America. This project will create a cooperative effort
between New Jersey Audubon, Environment Canada, and numerous organizations in Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana, and
Brazil. The purpose of the study is to obtain a more comprehensive assessment of the decline of shorebirds, and particularly
Semipalmated Sandpipers, along the northern coast of South America. Despite being one of the most abundant migrant
shorebirds in North America, strong signals are emerging that indicate that Semipalmated Sandpipers (Calidris pusilla) are
declining substantially in Western Atlantic Flyway. The major wintering area (85%) for Western Atlantic Semipalmated
Sandpipers is along the northern coast of South America. Last year, a partial aerial survey of this region (French Guiana and
Suriname) suggested an 80% decrease in the number of wintering shorebirds. Whether this decline was a one-year anomaly or
was concentrated only in the surveyed areas needs to be determined to assess the current conservation status of Western
Atlantic Flyway Semipalmated Sandpipers. Because of this new information, Western Atlantic Flyway Semipalmated
Sandpipers were included on the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s list of Birds of Conservation Concern 2008. Evaluation of the
magnitude and scale of the decline will inform decisions about the need to implement targeted conservation actions for
Semipalmated Sandpipers. The New Jersey Audubon Society was awarded a Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act
grant in FY2008, and this project is a continuation of the previously awarded project by expanding both the temporal and
geographic scope. In addition to the continuation criterion for a single source award, the New Jersey Audubon Society and its
cooperators have unique technical qualifications. The New Jersey Audubon Society staff has more than 10 years experience
working with Semipalmated Sandpipers, and cooperators from Environment Canada have been conducting aerial surveys in
South American for almost 30 years. Using the same aerial observers and following the same survey methods will ensure
results are comparable among geographic areas and across years. This announcement is published as a Sole Source in
accordance with FAR 6.302-1. This is NOT a request for quotes. The intent of this pre-solicitation notice is for informational
purposes only. There is no full announcement associated with this notice of Single Source award. No substantial involvement
on the part of the USFWS is anticipated for the successful completion of the objectives to be funded. It is anticipated that the
    USFWS’s involvement will consist of standard Federal stewardship responsibilities, such as monitoring project performance and
    providing technical assistance, if requested.

           FY 2009 Request for Proposals for White-nose syndrome Before submitting a proposal for White-nose syndrome (WNS) funds,
           please carefully review all the information and instructions associated with this request. Background First documented in New
           York State in the winter of 2006-2007, WNS refers to a disease responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of bats in
           the northeastern United States. WNS has been observed in at least 65 bat hibernacula in New York, Vermont, Massachusetts,
           Connecticut, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Virginia and is characterized by: the presence of a
           white fungal growth on the muzzle, wings, and other body surfaces; atypical winter behaviors, including shifts from regular roost
           locations and daytime outdoor flights; mass mortality events and/or unexplained population declines at hibernacula; and
           damage to wing membranes evident through mid-summer. Additional information on WNS can be found at:
           http://www.fws.gov/northeast/white_nose.htmlThe U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) is currently funding a number of
           projects related directly to the investigation and management of WNS, and is pleased to announce the opportunity to fund a
           new round of projects in FY2009. Projects should assist the Service with our ability to conserve Federally-listed bats (e.g.,
           Indiana bats, Virginia big-eared bats, and gray bats). However, surrogate species can, and often should, be used in
           investigations. (For details of several currently funded projects, please see:
           http://www.fws.gov/northeast/white_nose.html)FY2009 Priorities Through this request, we intend to fund research that
           addresses the following questions:1. What specifically is causing bat mortality? Related questions include: a. What is the role of
           the fungus (Geomyces sp.) in the observed mortalities?b. How do the conditions associated with WNS (e.g. aberrant behavior,
           apparently altered body condition, physiology, and/or immune response, etc.) relate to mortality and what is their underlying
           cause?2. Is WNS transmissible outside of hibernacula (e.g. in summer colonies, during breeding, etc, or to bat species that
           don’t use caves/mines)? If transmissible, by what means?3. Can WNS be treated or controlled?4. Are there differences in
           susceptibility by bat species or individuals that influence survival? We are also interested in projects that will assist the Service
           with:1. Developing successful containment strategies for WNS.2. Determining the effects of WNS on bat populations.3.
           Developing WNS monitoring and surveillance strategies.4. Identifying rapid assessment protocols to determine whether sites or
           bats are affected by WNS.5. Determining the feasibility of captive propagation for insectivorous bats; the species of most
           immediate concern is the Virginia big-eared bat (Corynorhinus townsendii virginianus).6. Determining the role of captive
           management/rehabilitation as a response to WNS. We anticipate making project selections by September 4, 2009 and the
           earliest start date for funded projects to start is likely September 30, 2009.APPLICANT REQUIREMENTS Projects must be
           completed by September 30, 2011 (1-2 year projects).Projects must be coordinated with appropriate state natural resource
           agency(is) regarding the scope and implementation, ideally prior to submission. Applicants must procure all necessary Federal
           and/or State permits for the proposed project, if funded. Applicants must obtain a Dun & Bradstreet (DUNS) number and
           register at http://www.ccr.gov if proposal is selected. Applicants must be willing to work in a collaborative manner and share
           results with other involved labs. Data sharing requirements will be spelled out in each approved scope of work. PROPOSAL
           REQUIREMENTS The following questions and concerns must be addressed in each project proposal:1) How will this project
           meet an identified FY2009 WNS priority?2) What are the objectives of this project? (objectives should be written as outcome
           oriented and measurable). What are the measureable outcomes of the project? 3) What activities or actions will this project
           undertake to achieve the stated objectives? 4) What is the timeline for project activities?5) Provide budget details, including an
           estimate of partnership and other matching funds, including the source (please note that there is no required match).6) What
           are the conservation implications if this project is not funded in FY2009-10?7) Summarize the most important strength of your
           proposal in the last paragraph.8) Include a brief statement of relevant qualifications of the Primary Investigator, partner
           organizations, and most important team members.9) In what way(s) does this project address threats to Federally-listed bat
           species?Project rank will be based upon how closely the project meets the FY2009 priorities addressed in this RFP, the
           timeliness of the proposed work, and over-all contribution to the WNS response effort. While not a requirement, the use of
           matching funds and partnerships to augment project resources is encouraged, and will be considered in the ranking process. All
           applicants will be notified of the final disposition of their proposal, irrespective of selection status.

                                                        Eligible Applicants
           Others (see text field entitled "Additional Information on Eligibility" for clarification)
                                    Additional Information on Eligibility:
           All types of museums, large and small, are eligible for funding. Eligible museums include aquariums, arboretums and botanical
           gardens, art museums, youth museums, general museums, historic houses and sites, history museums, nature centers, natural
           history and anthropology museums, planetariums, science and technology centers, specialized museums, and zoological parks.
           Federally operated and for-profit museums may not apply for IMLS funds. An eligible applicant must be: either a unit of state or
           local government or a private not-for-profit organization that has tax-exempt status under the Internal Revenue Code; located in
           one of the fifty states of the United States of America, the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam,
           American Samoa, the Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, the Republic of the Marshall Islands,
           the Federated states of Micronesia, or the Republic of Palau; and a museum that, using a professional staff, (1) is organized on
           a permanent basis for essentially educational or aesthetic purposes; (2) owns or uses tangible objects, either animate or
           inanimate; (3) cares for these objects; and (4) exhibits these objects to the general public on a regular basis through facilities
           which it owns or operates. An organization uses a professional staff if it employs at least one professional staff member, or the
           fulltime equivalent, whether paid or unpaid primarily engaged in the acquisition, care, or exhibition to the public of objects
           owned or used by the institution. An organization “exhibits objects to the general public” if such exhibition is a primary purpose
           of the institution. Further, an organization which exhibits objects to the general public for at least 120 days a year shall be
           deemed to exhibit objects to the general public on a regular basis. An organization which exhibits objects by appointment may
           meet the requirement to exhibit objects to the general public on a regular basis, if it can establish, in light of the facts under all
           the relevant circumstances, that this method of exhibition does not unreasonably restrict the accessibility of the institution's
           exhibits to the general public. Please note that an organization which does not have as a primary purpose the exhibition of
           objects to the general public. but which can demonstrate that it exhibits objects to the general public on a regular basis as a
           significant, separate, distinct, and continuing portion of its activities, and that it otherwise meets the museum eligibility
           requirements, may be determined to be eligible as a museum under these guidelines. A museum located within a parent
           organization that is a state or local government or multipurpose non-profit entity, such as a municipality, university, historical
           society, foundation, or a cultural center, may apply on its own behalf, if the museum: (1) is able to independently fulfill all the
           eligibility requirements listed above; (2) functions as a discrete unit within the parent organization; (3) has its own fully
           segregated and itemized operating budget; and (4) has the authority to make the application on its own. When any of the last
           three conditions cannot be met, a museum may apply through its parent organization. Prospective applicants that cannot fulfill
           all of these requirements should contact IMLS to discuss their eligibility before applying. IMLS may require additional supporting
           documentation from the applicant to determine the museum’s autonomy. Each eligible applicant within a single parent
           organization should clearly delineate its own programs and operations in the application narrative. A parent organization that
           controls multiple museums that are not autonomous but which are otherwise eligible may submit only one application per grant
           program; the application may be submitted by the parent organization on behalf of one or more of the eligible museums.

                                                            Description
           The Conservation Project Support program awards grants to help museums identify conservation needs and priorities, and
           perform activities to ensure the safekeeping of their collections. Conservation Project Support grants help museums develop
           and implement a logical, institution-wide approach to caring for their living and material collections. Applicants should apply for
           the project that meets one of the institution’s highest conservation needs. All applications must demonstrate that the primary
           goal of the project is conservation care, and not collection management or maintenance. Grants are available for many types of
           conservation activities, including surveys (general, detailed condition, or environmental); training; treatment; and environmental
           improvements. Museums are encouraged to share the impact of conservation activities with their communities through outreach
           and programs.

                                                  Description
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) invites applications to the Digital Humanities Start-Up Grants program. This
program is designed to encourage innovations in the digital humanities. By awarding relatively small grants to support the
planning stages, NEH aims to encourage the development of innovative projects that promise to benefit the humanities.
Proposals should be for the planning or initial stages of digital initiatives in any area of the humanities. Digital Humanities Start-
Up Grants may involve research that brings new approaches or documents best practices in the study of the digital humanities;
planning and developing prototypes of new digital tools for preserving, analyzing, and making accessible digital resources,
including libraries’ and museums’ digital assets; scholarship that examines the philosophical implications and impact of the use
of emerging technologies; innovative uses of technology for public programming and education utilizing both traditional and new
media; and new digital modes of publication that facilitate the dissemination of humanities scholarship in advanced academic as
well as informal or formal educational settings at all academic levels. Innovation is a hallmark of this grant category. All
applicants must propose an innovative approach, method, tool, or idea that has not been used before in the humanities. These
grants are modeled, in part, on the “high risk/high reward” paradigm often used by funding agencies in the sciences. NEH is
requesting proposals for projects that take some risks in the pursuit of innovation and excellence

                                                     Description
The Science of Science & Innovation Policy (SciSIP) program supports research designed to advance the scientific basis
of science and innovation policy. Research funded by the program thus develops, improves and expands models, analytical
tools, data and metrics that can be applied in the science policy decision making process. For example, research proposals
may develop behavioral and analytical conceptualizations, frameworks or models that have applications across a broad array of
SciSIP challenges, including the relationship between broader participation and innovation or creativity. Proposals may also
develop methodologies to analyze science and technology data, and to convey the information to a variety of audiences.
Researchers are also encouraged to create or improve science and engineering data, metrics and indicators reflecting current
discovery, particularly proposals that demonstrate the viability of collecting and analyzing data on knowledge generation and
innovation in organizations. Among the many research topics supported are: examinations of the ways in which the contexts,
structures and processes of science and engineering research are affected by policy decision, the evaluation of the tangible and
intangible returns from investments in science and from investments in research and development, the study of structures and
processes that facilitate the development of usable knowledge, theories of creative processes and their transformation into
social and economic outcomes, the collection, analysis and visualization of new data describing the scientific and engineering
enterprise. The SciSIP program invites the participation of researchers from all of the social, behavioral and economic sciences
as well as those working in domain-specific applications such as chemistry, biology, physics, or nanotechnology. The program
welcomes proposals for individual or multi-investigator research projects, doctoral dissertation improvement awards,
conferences, workshops, symposia, experimental research, data collection and dissemination, computer equipment and other
instrumentation, and research experience for undergraduates. The program places a high priority on interdisciplinary research
as well as international collaboration. Investigators are encouraged to submit proposals of joint interest to the SciSIP Program
and other NSF programs and NSF initiative areas. The program places a high priority on broadening participation and
encourages proposals from junior faculty, women, other underrepresented minorities, Research Undergraduate Institutions, and
EPSCoR states. The program also supports small grants that are time-critical and small grants that are high-risk and of a
potentially transformative nature (see Grants for Rapid Response Research (RAPID) and EArly-concept Grants for Exploratory
Research (EAGER).)For program specific guidelines on the Doctoral Dissertation Improvement Grants in SciSIP, please visit:
Doctoral Preparation Checklist. The Division of Science Resources Statistics (SRS) will provide special support for Doctoral
Dissertation Research Improvement Grants that utilize SRS datasets.

    Fellows to pursue their research and training goals in the most appropriate research locations regardless of the availability of
    funding for the Fellows at that site. For FY 2010, these BIO programs are (1) Broadening Participation in Biology and (2)
    Biological Informatics. In future years, these areas will change as new scientific and infrastructure opportunities present
    themselves; and this solicitation will be changed to reflect the areas being funded. The fellowships are also designed to provide
    active mentoring of the Fellows by the sponsoring scientists who will benefit from having these talented young scientists in their
    research groups. The research and training plan of each fellowship must address important scientific questions in contemporary
    biology within the scope of the BIO Directorate and the specific guidelines in this fellowship program solicitation. Because the
    fellowships are offered only to postdoctoral scientists early in their careers, doctoral advisors are encouraged to discuss the
    availability of BIO fellowships with their graduate students early in their doctoral programs. Fellowships are awards to
    individuals, not institutions, and are administered by the Fellows.
