do not meet the eligibility requirements above. Although such entities may not serve as
the official applicants, they are encouraged to participate in projects as partners. Federally
operated libraries and museums may not apply for the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian
Program grants, but they may serve as nonessential partners to applicants if they do not
receive IMLS grant funds as a result of the project. Contact IMLS before submitting a
proposal involving a federal agency or federal collection. Other nonfederal entities may
serve as partners and may receive IMLS grant funds as a result of the project. Consult
with IMLS about any eligibility questions before submitting an application.

The Secretary of Agriculture has a congressionally designated advisory Council that
assists the U.S. Forest Service in establishing the grant categories and recommending the
final proposals for the Forest Service to consider. This is the National Urban and
Community Forestry Advisory Council (Council). The Council serves to advise the
Secretary of Agriculture on the status of the nation’s urban and community forests and
related natural resources. The Council seeks to establish sustainable urban and
community forests, by encouraging communities of all sizes to manage and protect their
natural resources, which can, if well managed, improve the public’s health, well being,
and economic vitality, and create resilient ecosystems for present and future generations.
Urban and Community Forestry Program RequirementsThrough the U.S. Forest Service’s
competitive Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost-Share Grant Program, the
Council only supports urban and community forestry projects that have national or
widespread application and impact. All proposals must apply to Urban and Community
Forestry program authorities as designated by Congress in the Cooperative Forestry
Assistance Act (Section 9) [Section 9 Urban and Community Forestry only (PDF, pp. 19-
24)] and the annual criteria set forth by the Council. A listing of the previously funded
projects can be viewed at www.fs.fed.us/ucf/nucfac.Definition of Urban and Community
Forestry: The art, science, and technology of managing trees, forests, and natural systems

Description
Purpose. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) solicits grant
applications from institutions/organizations to participate in a new NHLBI program on
Functional Modeling of Pediatric Upper Airway Disorders. The objective is to identify
the biological and structural components limiting airflow in congenital or acquired
disorders of the pediatric upper airway (infant to adolescent). The ultimate goal is to
develop novel approaches that will identify targets for intervention to correct obstruction
of airflow through the upper airway. This program will require collaborations among
experts in computational modeling (mathematicians/bioengineers) with clinician
scientists (e.g. pulmonologists, otolaryngologists, craniofacial surgeons, and/or
radiologists). Use of the multiple PI mechanism is encouraged. Only human studies will
be supported. Mechanism of Support. This FOA will utilize the R01 grant mechanism.
Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards. The NHLBI intends to commit
approximately $5,000,000 total costs for FY2010. The total amount to be awarded for
Functional Modeling of the Upper Airway Program will be a maximum of $20,000,000
total costs for the 4-year project period. It is anticipated that NHLBI will fund up to 5
research awards.

Agency Name
National Science Foundation
Description
This program is a continuation of the Plant Genome Research Program (PGRP) that
began in FY 1998 as part of the National Plant Genome Initiative (NPGI). A new five-
year plan for the NPGI was published in January 2009
(http://www.nsf.gov/bio/pubs/reports/npgi_five_year_plan_2009_2013.pdf). The goal of
the NPGI is to develop a basic knowledge of the structures and functions of plant
genomes and translate this knowledge to a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of
economically important plants and plant processes of potential economic value. By
bridging basic research and plant performance in the field, the NPGI will accelerate basic
discovery and innovation in economically important plants and enable enhanced
management of agriculture, natural resources, and the environment to meet societal
needs. In the past twelve years of the PGRP, there has been a tremendous increase in the
tools available for genomics in key crop plants and their models, including but not
limited to, collections of expressed sequence resources, genome survey sequences,
mutant collections, expression profiling resources, and tools for studying gene expression
in situ. High quality whole genome sequences and downstream tools are available for a
number of key crops as well as widely-used model systems. This wealth of genomic
resources makes it possible for researchers to begin to address some of the major



                                                                                             11
unanswered questions in plant biology that have been intractable using traditional
approaches as well as transfer findings from model systems into plants of economic
importance. At the same time, there is a continued need for novel and creative tools to
allow development of new experimental approaches or new ways of analyzing genomic
data. Proposals that present conceptually new and different ideas are encouraged,
especially from investigators and institutions that have not participated in the PGRP
before. In addition, proposals that provide strong and novel training opportunities integral
to the research plan, and particularly across disciplines are especially encouraged.Four
kinds of activity will be supported in FY 2010: (1) Genome-Enabled Plant Research
(GEPR) awards to tackle major unanswered questions in plant biology on a genome-wide
scale; (2) Transferring Research from Model Systems (TRMS) awards to apply basic
biological findings made using model systems to studying the basic biology of plants of
economic importance; (3) Tools and Resources for Plant Genome Research (TRPGR)
awards to support development of novel technologies and analysis tools to enable
discovery in plant genomics; and (4) Comparative Plant Genome Sequencing (CPGS)
awards to support development of sequence resources to enable research in economically
important crop plants and plant processes of potential economic value. Proposals
addressing these opportunities are welcomed at all scales, from single-investigator
projects through multi-investigator, multi-institution projects, commensurate with the
scope of the work proposed.The PGRP encourages proposals from early career
investigators and also considers proposals submitted to the CAREER program
(http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=503214&org=BIO). Early
career investigators are strongly encouraged to contact a PGRP Program Director for
further guidance.
