Organic Training for Agricultural Professionals Prize
-
Full announcement
The "Organic Training for Agricultural Professionals" prize recognizes extraordinary contributions to training farming community groups, farmer-leaders, and agricultural professionals in organic agronomic, certification and record-keeping, and profitability guidance. Specifically, this award focuses on programs and organizations that have used an innovative approach to delivering content and have demonstrated impacts in improving education and extension to organic farmers. This award provides innovative programs with the investment needed to take their efforts to the next level and bolster their communication to a wider audience, leading to more farmers adopting organic production and thereby accessing the many benefits associated with the organic opportunity. The Organic Center and the Foundation for Food & Agriculture Research welcomes applications from all domestic higher education institutions, non-profit organizations, consortiums, US government-affiliated research agencies, tribal government entities or any combination of the above. Matching funds required. April 2, 2022

Organic Center-FFAR joint Organic Research Program
Full announcement
The “Organic Center-FFAR joint Organic Research Program” supports innovative research that will have the biggest impact on bringing organic into the future. For 2022, the research should focus on transforming how organic systems can contribute to climate change mitigation and resilience. Organic farming is poised to be part of the climate change solution, because organic farmers do not rely on fossil-fuel intensive synthetic inputs to manage pests or increase soil fertility, and they also use farming techniques that sequester carbon in the soil. However, more work needs to be done to understand specific strategies that can be undertaken by organic growers to mitigate climate change. Further, organic farmers are already facing negative impacts from climate change, such as drought, flooding, invasive pests, and extreme weather events. In addition to mitigation-focused projects, research is needed to better understand techniques organic growers can take to adapt to current and future climate changes. This program will place priority on projects that demonstrate an ability to use systems-based, cutting-edge techniques to change the trajectory of organic for the future. Matching funds NOT required.

Systems Biology-Enabled Microbiome Research to Facilitate Predictions of Interactions and Behavior in the Environment
DE-FOA-0002602
Full announcement
This FOA is released as part of BSSD’s Environmental Microbiome Research program element. The GSP seeks to understand microbial interactions in natural environments and how such interactions are shaped by environmental change. Understanding community responses to environmental perturbations and long-term change represents an important frontier for efforts to predict ecosystem behavior at different scales. BSSD aims at enabling such predictions by discovering how organisms and community behavior can be understood by leveraging omic-based information. In addition, many environmental microbes harbor genetic potential with relevance to bioenergy and bio-design, and a fundamental understanding of their environmental genomics is likely to have broader impacts across DOE’s mission space. More specifically, this FOA will support projects that enhance our ability to understand microbial interactions dynamically and predictively. Research should facilitate realistic recapitulations of microbial ecosystems that move beyond the characterization of microbial and genetic diversity. Of particular interest are projects that will provide insights into microbial processes that enhance the long-term storage of carbon in soils, thereby leading to net carbon removal from the atmosphere.

Biosystems Design to Enable Safe Production of Next-Generation Biofuels, Bioproducts and Biomaterials
DE-FOA-0002600
Full announcement
Integrative multidisciplinary applications are solicited for highly innovative, fundamental multi-omics and systems biology research and technology development for biosystems design. Applications should respond to one of the following two research topics: Microbial biosystems design for the production of biofuels, bioproducts, and biomaterials OR Plant biosystems design for bioenergy, bioproducts, and biomaterials. Applications must include strategies to address biocontainment, minimizing risks of potential release of engineered organisms into the environment or other unintended outcomes. April 6, 2022

Space Biology: Animal Studies
NNH21ZDA001N-SBAS
Full announcement
This new program element, E.11 Space Biology: Animal Studies, specifically solicits proposals for investigations that characterize how animals respond to stressors in spaceflight or spaceflight-like environments. In general, the Space Biology Program focuses on research that will increase NASA's understanding of how living systems respond to the unique environments that are encountered during space exploration, including the Low Earth Orbit (LEO) environment inside the International Space Station (ISS) and deep space conditions beyond LEO, including transit to and maintenance in Lunar and Martian environments. This program element funding opportunity solicits three different Project Types: Research Investigations (RI), Early Career Investigations (ECI), and Gene Lab Analytical Investigations (GLAI) pertaining to animal and related studies.

NARMS Cooperative Agreement Program to Strengthen Antibiotic Resistance Surveillance in Retail Food Specimens (U01) Clinical Trials Not Allowed
PAR-20-124
Full announcement
Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM), builds upon the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) which was initiated in 1996 as one of the key activities in a national action plan to combat antibiotic resistance threats. The purpose of this FOA is to protect and promote public health by enhancing, strengthening and sustaining antibiotic resistance surveillance in retail food specimens within the NARMS program. The NARMS cooperative agreements is intended to improve the detection of antibiotic resistance among bacteria in food commodities, as well as expand to new sites to expand the scope of sampling. Measurable outcomes of the program will be in alignment with the NARMS Objectives. May 3, 2022
