Characterization and Contamination Testing of Source Separated Organic Feedstocks and Slurries for Co-Digestion at Resource Recovery Facilities
Full announcement

$340,000

The objectives of this project are to identify, evaluate, and develop techniques for characterizing source separated organic (SSO) feedstocks and slurries for co-digestion at resource recovery facilities and testing them for contamination; to link characteristics to product quality; and support development of minimum feedstock quality standards for various product goals and standardization of sampling protocols for rapid monitoring of feedstocks.

Source Reduction Assistance Grant Program
EPA-HQ-OPPT-2018-002
Full announcement

EPA is soliciting projects aimed at reducing or eliminating pollutants from entering any waste stream or otherwise released into the environment prior to recycling, treatment, or disposal. In this regard, EPA looks forward to reviewing SRA proposals that offer practical pollution prevention (P2)/source reduction information, tools or approaches to help state agencies, federally-recognized tribes, intertribal consortia, businesses, municipal/local governments, and/or local communities assess their environmental footprint and propose activities that will reduce or eliminate harmful air emissions, use of hazardous materials, reduce water and energy consumption and identify other resource efficiencies.

FY 2018 Recovery Challenge
F18AS00269
Full announcement

The Recovery Challenge opportunity is to enhance and increase partnerships with agencies and organizations implementing highest priority recovery actions identified in recovery plans, and in particular for genetically-sound breeding, rearing, and reintroduction programs. Section 2(a)(5) of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, 16 U.S.C. 1535, as amended, authorizes the use of Federal financial assistance to encourage the States and other interested parties to develop and maintain conservation programs to safeguard the Nationtional heritage in fish, wildlife and plants for the benefit of all citizens. In addition, the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018 ((H.R. 1625) (Division G - Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2018)) authorized specific funding for the Recovery Challenge funding opportunity.
•  Applications must be submitted to appropriate Regional Office by 8 PM EST on 8/24/18.

Dual Purpose with Dual Benefit: Research in Biomedicine and Agriculture Using Agriculturally Important Domestic Animal Species (R01)
PAR-16-366
Full announcement

Pre-proposal (full proposal due 9/27/18).  The purpose of this interagency Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite the submission of grant applications that utilize agriculturally important domestic animal species to improve human health through the advancement of basic and translational research deemed highly relevant to both agricultural and biomedical research. This initiative is designed to facilitate and encourage comparative medicine research studies through the careful selection and refinement of farm animal models that mimic human developmental, physiological and etiological processes to better understand the biology of fertility and infertility, normal and abnormal metabolism, developmental origin of diseases, and improve prevention and treatment of infectious diseases in both human and agriculturally important domestic animals. The anticipated outcomes include both the elucidation of fundamental information relevant for the improvement of human health and an increase in food animal production and improvement in animal health and product quality. It is envisioned that each application will address mission-relevant areas of both agencies.

Elsa U. Pardee Foundation -
Cancer Research Proposals
Full announcement

$100,000 - $200,000
The Elsa U. Pardee Foundation funds research to investigators in United States non-profit institutions proposing research directed toward identifying new treatments or cures for cancer. The Foundation particularly encourages grant applications for a one year period which will allow establishment of capabilities of new cancer researchers, or new cancer approaches by established cancer researchers. It is anticipated that this early stage funding by the Foundation may lead to subsequent and expanded support using government agency funding. Project relevance to cancer detection, treatment, or cure should be clearly identified.

Phytoplankton Ecology Program Internship
Full announcement

An internship in the Phytoplankton Ecology Program will deal with either the biology of phytoplankton or the technology to study them. Biology oriented interns could participate in laboratory studies of how different species interact to field projects investigating details of how phytoplankton species are distributed off the coast of Florida. Technology interns could participate in engineering enhancements of existing instruments or evaluation of the performance of new instruments. Additionally it may be possible to develop a combined biology and technology internship.

Manatee Research Program Internship
Full announcement

The Manatee Research Program studies several aspects of the biology of manatees inhabiting the waters of Southwest Florida, including population dynamics, population genetics, habitat use, distributional patterns and social behavior. Field data and samples are collected using photo-identification, aerial surveys and non-invasive genetic sampling. From spring through early fall, photo-identification, genetic, and behavioral sampling are conducted primarily in Sarasota and Manatee counties.  During the winter, field work is conducted primarily in Charlotte Harbor and Ft. Myers area.  Aerial surveys are conducted twice per month in Sarasota County to assess relative...

Bioscience Research
Full announcement

$225,000 over 3 years

The Whitehall Foundation assists scholarly research in the life sciences through its research grants and grants-in-aid programs. It is the foundation's policy to support dynamic areas of basic biological research that are not heavily supported by federal agencies or other foundations with a specialized mission. The foundation emphasizes the support of young scientists at the beginning of their careers and productive senior scientists who wish to move into new fields of interest.
