Funding Opportunity: NOAA Sea Grant Aquaculture Extension and Technology Transfer
The Federal Funding Opportunity for the "NOAA Sea Grant Aquaculture Extension and Technology Transfer 2013" has been published on grants.gov. Please visit and search for keyword "Aquaculture" or CFDA number 11.417. The announcement text also is attached here.
Please bear in mind that funding for this competition is contingent on the Sea Grant program's final Fiscal Year 2013 budget.
Applications are due via Grants.gov by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on April 18, 2013. Applications received after the closing dates and times will not be accepted.
Depending on availability of funds, NOAA Sea Grant expects to have available about $1,600,000 for each of FY 2013 and FY 2014 for a national competition to fund marine aquaculture extension and technology transfer efforts as part of the overall plan to support the development of environmentally and economically sustainable ocean, coastal and Great Lakes aquaculture. Aquaculture that occurs in the Great Lakes or its coastal zone is considered marine aquaculture for this competition.
This announcement includes application information and criteria for proposals requesting a maximum of $300,000 in total federal funding for a one- or two-year period. Matching funds are required.
Applicants must be associated with Sea Grant, however interested parties are encouraged to work with the Sea Grant programs in their region to explore opportunities for partnering.
Proposals must include a partnership (e.g., with industry, local community governments, state or federal agencies, regional management efforts, or non-governmental organizations).
Awards are anticipated to be issued no later than September 1, 2013. Additional proposals from this competition may be selected for funding in 2014, subject to the availability of funds.
