Applying Novel Approaches to Improve Long-Term Exposure Assessment of Outdoor Air Pollution for Health Studies
RFA 19-1
Full announcement

HEI is seeking to fund studies to advance exposure assessment for air pollution and health studies using sensors, mobile monitoring, tracking technologies, and other approaches. The studies should develop and apply novel approaches to improve long-term (months to years) exposure assessment of outdoor air pollutants whose levels vary greatly in space and time. Request for Applications (RFA) 19-1 solicits applications for studies designed to quantitatively evaluate exposure measurement error and to determine the potential impact of using novel approaches to assess exposures to air pollution on health estimates. The approaches of interest include, but are not limited to:
(1) Harnessing novel measurement technologies: air pollution sensors, mobile monitoring, location tracking, and other  technologies that are increasingly being used to measure air pollution and human activity at fine spatial and temporal  scales;
(2) Exposure assessment modeling approaches: hybrid models, machine learning, and other statistical techniques.
Provides funding for up to five studies of 2 or 3 years in duration with a funding cap of $800,000 each.

Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences

 The Pew Scholars Program in the Biomedical Sciences provides funding to young investigators of outstanding promise in science relevant to the advancement of human health. The program makes grants to selected academic institutions to support the independent research of outstanding individuals who are in their first few years of their appointment at the assistant professor level. The current grant level is $300,000; $75,000 per year for a four-year period. For the 2020 award, one nomination will be invited from each of the participating institutions. Participating institutions have been selected on the basis of the scope of their work in biomedical research and recommended to The Pew Charitable Trusts by the National Advisory Committee of the program.

Contaminated Sites, Natural Disasters, Changing Environmental Conditions, and Vulnerable Communities: Research to Build Resilience
EPA-G2019-STAR-E1
Full announcement

EPA, as part of its Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, is seeking research needed to identify and assess the impacts of contaminants in conjunction with environmental and other non-chemical stressors (e.g., extreme events, geological, regional, seasonal, socioeconomic, cultural, behavioral) that may govern the particular vulnerabilities in children and elderly, so communities can be equipped with science-based solutions for reducing the vulnerabilities and building community-level resilience.

Bats for the Future Fund
Full announcement

The Bats for the Future Fund will award grants preferentially for projects that focus on development and deployment of field treatments, management tools and conservation strategies within the WNS established area (i.e., where WNS is endemic) and on the leading edge of its spread across North America. Project objectives should vary depending on epidemiological focus of the proposed work as it relates to the spread of Pd and WNS. 50% match required.

Alaska Fisheries and Aquatic Habitat Management
L19AS00103
Full announcement

The BLM Aquatic Habitat Management works cooperatively with a wide range of constituents to develop strategies that provide protection for sensitive riparian and wetland areas as well as maintain or restore stream function and stream access to floodplains while supporting multiple uses on public lands. The program manages and guides fish and aquatic habitat conservation, riparian and wetland conservation, control of aquatic invasive species, aquatic organism passage, and monitoring riparian and instream habitat conditions and water quantity and quality condition and trends.

Cyberinfrastructure for Emerging Science and Engineering Research (CESER)
19-7684
Full announcement

The Cyberinfrastructure for Emerging Science and Engineering Research (CESER) program aims to catalyze new science and engineering discovery pathways through early-stage collaborative activities between disciplinary scientists and engineers as well as developers/implementers of innovative cyberinfrastructure (CI) capabilities, services, and approaches.  Proposals pursuant to CESER should clearly identify and describe the science and engineering goals and rationale, and explain and support the potential for transformative impacts on science/engineering research and broader impacts. Proposals are particularly welcomed that address identified common needs across multiple research disciplines; leverage and accelerate the impact of existing CI investments in resources and services in one or more application domains; aim to reduce barriers to broader adoption of CI-enabled science/engineering approaches; and integrate different aspects and elements of CI to achieve holistic solutions with transformative science/engineering impact. Proposals accepted anytime and award amount may vary.
