National Sea Grant Competitions
 

Periodically, the National Sea Grant College Program, under the auspices of the Department of Commerce and NOAA, issues Requests for Proposals (RFPs) on special topics. Proposals are typically reviewed at the national level, and funding is awarded on a competitive basis.

The 2017 Sea Grant Aquaculture Initiative includes the following two competitive funding opportunities. The National Sea Grant Office expects all investigators to work with the local Sea Grant program to develop proposals and to integrate the work, to the extent possible, with local Sea Grant staff. The local Sea Grant Director must be listed as PI. Please review the complete FFO documents carefully.

 
1. Integrated Projects to Increase Aquaculture Production
Depending on appropriations, NOAA Sea Grant expects to have available a total of $10,000,000-$12,000,000 between fiscal years 2017, 2018, and 2019 for a national initiative to increase aquaculture production in the short-term (2-4 years). This competition is designed to foster the expansion of sustainable U.S. marine, coastal, and Great Lakes aquaculture.
 
Successful proposals from South Carolina will outline integrated projects (see FFO) using a team approach that clearly address major constraints, barriers, or hurdles limiting coastal and marine aquaculture production in South Carolina and the southeastern U.S. region.  

If you and your colleagues have ideas that you feel would meet the expectations of the FFO and the strategic goals of the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium, please e-mail a summary paragraph to Rick DeVoe at Rick.DeVoe@scseagrant.org by COB March 13, 2017; use the subject line “2017 Integrated Aquaculture Projects Competition.”
 
Also note that all Letters of Intent are due to the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium office by 5:00 pm on March 21, 2017. Please email them to Consortium Executive Director Rick DeVoe (Rick.DeVoe@scseagrant.org) and copy Consortium Research Manager Susannah Sheldon (Susannah.Sheldon@scseagrant.org).
 
Please note that we will screen all Letters of Intent for relevance before submitting them to the National Sea Grant College Program office.

2. Addressing Impediments to Aquaculture Opportunities
Depending on appropriations, NOAA Sea Grant expects to have available a total of $3,000,000 between fiscal years 2017 and 2018 for a national initiative focused on answering key questions impeding the development and expansion of sustainable United States marine, coastal, and Great Lakes aquaculture.
 
Successful applications from South Carolina must outline small scale projects, business plans, workshops, etc. that seek to address key questions, barriers, or hurdles impeding the advancement of new or developing aquaculture initiatives that will contribute to the continuing growth of coastal and marine aquaculture production in South Carolina. Applications should involve one or more members of the Consortium staff.
 
If you are interested in working with the Consortium staff to submit a proposal for this competition, please e-mail a summary paragraph to Rick DeVoe at Rick.DeVoe@scseagrant.org by COB March 13, 2017; use the subject line “2017 Impediments to Aquaculture Competition.”
 
There are no Letters of intent for this competition. Note that Full Proposals are due to the S.C. Sea Grant Consortium office by 5:00 pm on April 11, 2017. Please email them to Consortium Executive Director Rick DeVoe (Rick.DeVoe@scseagrant.org) and copy Consortium Research Manager Susannah Sheldon (Susannah.Sheldon@scseagrant.org).
 
Please note that we will screen all Letters of Intent for relevance before submitting them to the National Sea Grant College Program office as we are limited to submitting a maximum of three applications. Therefore, we will be submitting only the most promising proposals.
