Funding Opportunities

Training and Technical Assistance to Improve Water Quality and Enable Small Public Water Systems to Provide Safe Drinking Water
Tuesday, August 16, 2016-- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is soliciting applications from eligible applicants to provide training and technical assistance for small public water systems to help such systems achieve and maintain compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), and to provide training and technical assistance for small publicly owned wastewater systems, communities served by onsite/decentralized wastewater systems, and private well owners to improve water quality under the Clean Water Act (CWA). Training and technical assistance activities provided to these systems, communities and private well owners should be made available nationally in rural and urban communities and to personnel of tribally owned and operated systems. -- (full text)

Enviromental Health Cohorts Maintenance and Infrastructure (R24)
Monday, August 01, 2016-- Applicants from eligible entities are currently being accepted by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) to provide support for the maintenance of existing environmental epidemiology cohorts and their associated biorepositories; for the collection or development of additional measures; to facilitate follow-up of study participants especially during key windows of susceptibility, and to provide a structure to facilitate broader sharing of data and resources with the scientific community. The goal of this program is to provide stability to existing EECs by supporting the necessary infrastructure to retain trained field personnel essential to continue ongoing longitudinal data collection, to follow-up study participants, and to preserve the integrity and quality of specimen collection. Each resource grant is expected to focus on activities that will enable efficient planning and operation of cohorts in preparation to (1) maintain the scientific integrity of the resource and community engagement; (2) prepare for future scientific needs and direction; (3) promote engagement of new disciplines in the field; and (4) facilitate scientific collaborations across cohorts. -- (full text)

Modeling of Climate Change Mitigation, Impacts and Adaptation
Wednesday, July 27, 2016-- Applications from eligible entities are currently being accepted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agencys Office of Air and Radiation (OAR) to advance the field of climate economic modeling to assist decision makers and the public in effectively responding to the challenges and opportunities posed by climate change. The work involved in this effort includes two distinct modeling capabilities. The first is computable general equilibrium (CGE) modeling of climate mitigation and impacts at the level of disaggregation of U.S. states. The second is integrated assessment modeling (IAM) and assessment of multiple greenhouse gases (GHGs) and air pollutants to enhance understanding of climate change impacts. EPA seeks proposals from eligible entities that will enhance studies related to the causes, effects, (including health and welfare effects), extent, prevention and control of air pollution. Specifically, this effort is intended to contribute to the development and use of modeling tools to analyze the mitigation and impacts of greenhouse gas emissions. -- (full text)

Sunshot Technology to Market 2 "Incubator 11, Solarmat 4"
Tuesday, November 03, 2015-- The SunShot Technology to Market Incubator 11, SolarMat 4 funding opportunity will support the development of tools, technologies, and services that will significantly reduce the costs for solar energy systems across all technology areas (photovoltaics, power electronics, and non-hardware costs such as customer acquisition, permitting, financing, interconnection, and inspection). As part of this effort, this funding opportunity represents the coordinated release of all of the SunShot Tech-to-Market marquee annual funding programs designed to help for-profit businesses. This funding opportunity will be used to foster and accelerate the development of innovative and impactful technologies and businesses working to reduce the levelized cost of electricity for solar. It targets for-profit entities, as they are the most efficient means of directly impacting the solar energy market and the most critical components of the cost of solar energy. By leveraging Americas entrepreneurs and businesses, the Energy Department will ensure new products and business models have the best chance at having a positive impact on reducing the cost of energy from solar. Submission Deadline for Concept Papers: November 18, 2015, 3:00pm ET Full Application Informational Webinar: January 6, 2016, 3:00pm ET Submission Deadline for Full Applications: February 3, 2016, 3:00pm ET Expected Submission Deadline for Replies to Reviewer Comments: March 14, 2016, 3:00pm ET Expected Date for EERE Selection Notifications: May 2016 Expected Timeframe for Award Negotiations: May - August 2016 -- (full text)
