Funded projects will contribute to WSG and state priority information needs by advancing knowledge in one of the four WSG program areas: environmental literacy and workforce development, resilient communities and economies, healthy coastal ecosystems, and sustainable fisheries and aquaculture.
WSG is particularly interested in funding projects that engage, and address issues of concern to, Washington Pacific coastal communities. WSG also anticipates partnering with the Puget Sound Partnership to fund projects that align with the 15 priority Science Work Actions identified in the Puget Sound Science Work Plan.
- About $2 million will be available over a two-year period to support an estimated eight to ten projects. Proposals may request annual budgets up to $140,000 for a total project cap of $280,000; a 50 percent non-federal cost share or match is required. Investigators may apply for a graduate research fellow to participate in their research project.
- WSG activities for the period from February 1, 2024 through January 31, 2026 will be funded through a federal omnibus award that integrates research, education, engagement and administrative activities. This RFP solicits research projects that will be conducted primarily in calendar years 2024 and 2025. Projects may be scheduled to begin in 2024 or 2025 and may be of one or two years in duration. The project end date may be no later than January 31, 2026.
