NC CASC Announces FY20 Funding Opportunity

NC CASC Announces FY20 Funding Opportunity


This solicitation invites proposals for projects to be initiated in Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 for the North Central Climate Adaptation Science Center (NC CASC) that inform high-priority natural or cultural resource management issues that can benefit from climate-informed planning and adaptation management. The remaining CASCs are not participating in this funding opportunity. The amount of funding available (if any) is currently pending Congressional budget and appropriations action.


Statements of Interest (SOIs) are due January 14, 2020, at 3pm MT. Full proposals will be solicited by the NC CASC after SOIs are reviewed. View the solicitation:


Proposals can be within any one of four science priority topics, listed below. It is unlikely that the NC CASC will select more than one project for funding per priority topic, and there is no guarantee the NC CASC will select a project from all four priority topics. Investigators should read the full funding opportunity document and ensure that their proposals are responsive to the opportunity instructions.

  • Topic A: Typology of climate vulnerability and adaptation for under-studied species
  • Topic B: Projections of future flows and temperature in streams in the NC CASC region
  • Topic C: Scientific support for DOI bureaus or state fish and wildlife agencies
  • Topic D: Scientific support for Tribes or other tribal entities

The NC CASC may actively engage investigators considering similar ideas to achieve maximum synergy and results. Please reach out to Aparna Bamzai-Dodson or Dr. Alisa Wade, (NC CASC Deputy Director and Research Coordinator, respectively) with any questions.
