Grants & Policies: Funding Opportunities: Current RFPs

Closes: 5:00 p.m. EDT on Monday, June 6, 2022

Connecticut Sea Grant (CTSG) and New York Sea Grant (NYSG) announce the Long Island Sound Study (LISS) extra-mural research program. The intent of this program is to fund research that will support the science-based management of Long Island Sound (LIS) and its resources, and the implementation of the LISS Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (CCMP).

The LISS is a regional, community-based partnership to protect and restore LIS. Information on the LISS can be obtained at www.longislandsoundstudy.net.

Preliminary proposals are invited for the funding period of March 1, 2023 to February 28, 2025. Any investigator seeking support for this period (or portion thereof) must submit a preliminary proposal via this, NYSG’s electronic submission web site, by 5:00 p.m. EDT on Monday June 6, 2022. Hard copy, email, and fax submissions will NOT be accepted. For this competition, we anticipate a significant expansion in available funding for research projects.

Subject to available federal funding, up to $5,500,000 is expected to be available for one- or two-year projects. The first year of the funding period covered by this Call for Preliminary Proposals begins on March 1, 2023. Allocation of Year 2 funds, if applicable, will be contingent on satisfactory progress in Year 1, and availability of federal funding. Projects chosen for funding require approval of a Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) prior to initiation of data collection.
