NC Sea Grant Community Collaborative Research Grant Program

North Carolina Sea Grant’s Community Collaborative Research Grant program (CCRG) is accepting proposals now through Nov. 20, 2018. The program brings communities and university researchers together to study high-priority environmental and economic issues in North Carolina — and now funding is open for projects across the entire state. The Community Collaborative Research Grant Program, or CCRG, is supported by North Carolina Sea Grant, in partnership with the William R. Kenan Jr. Institute for Engineering, Technology and Science based at North Carolina State University.

The CCRG requires the use of a collaborative research approach that couples the knowledge of community stakeholders with academic experts in the field to address priority coastal issues that align with the mission and strategic plan of Sea Grant.

2019 Healthy Watersheds Consortium Grant Program

The goal of the Healthy Watersheds Consortium Grant Program is to accelerate strategic protection of healthy, freshwater ecosystems and their watersheds. The primary focus of applicants should be protection and stewardship of land in the watershed, not restoration of degraded habitats or projects with a strictly water quality improvement outcome. This goal will be achieved by:
  • Developing funding mechanisms, plans, policies, or strategies to implement large-scale watershed or source water protection or green infrastructure objectives;
  • Building the sustainably organizational infrastructure, social support, and long-term funding commitments necessary to implement large-scale protection of healthy watersheds; and
  • Supporting innovative or catalytic projects that may accelerate funding for or implementation of watershed protection efforts, or broadly advance this field of practice.

Awards will be considered in the categories of watershed action projects, building watershed protection capacity, and advancing the state of practice.


 

Ongoing:

FY 2017 Economic Development Assistance Programs Funding Opportunity (No Deadlines)

The Economic Development Administration's (EDA's) mission is to lead the Federal economic development agenda by promoting innovation and competitiveness, preparing American regions for economic growth and success in the worldwide economy.

Specifically, under the Economic Development Assistance programs (EDAP) Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA), EDA will make construction, non-construction, and revolving loan fund investments under the Public Works and Economic Adjustment Assistance (EAA) Programs. Through the EDAP NOFA, EDA solicits applications from rural and urban communities to develop initiatives that advance new ideas and creative approaches to address rapidly evolving economic conditions.

There are no submission deadlines under this opportunity. Proposals and applications will be accepted on an ongoing basis until the publication of a new EDAP FFO.
