Abstract: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is announcing a new 2022 Federal Funding Opportunity for projects that address the growing need to understand interactions between ocean acidification and harmful algal blooms and their cascading impacts to coastal ecosystems, communities, and economies to inform management decisions. NOAA's National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science and Ocean Acidification Program are making $1.5 million available through this competition to fund 3 to 5 projects for one year. If more funds become available for this program, the selected projects are expected to be funded at the level of $300,00 to $500,000 per year per proposal. Projects are expected not to exceed 3 years in duration. Funding is contingent upon the availability of Fiscal Year 2022 Federal appropriations. The deadline for a letter of intent, which is required to submit a full application, is October 14, 2021. The deadline for full applications is January 19, 2022. This webinar will serve to introduce the Federal Funding Opportunity and answer any questions the community has.
