The NOAA Marine Debris Program is proud to announce our FY19 “Marine Debris Research” federal funding opportunity.
This opportunity provides funding for research directly related to marine debris through field, laboratory, and modeling experiments. Successful project proposals will explore the ecological risk associated with marine debris, determine debris exposure levels, examine the fate and transport of marine debris in nearshore coastal environments, and/or quantify habitat impacts resulting from marine debris. Projects may address one or more of these research priorities and should be original, hypothesis-driven projects that have not previously been addressed to scientific standards.
The submission period for research proposals will extend from September 17 - December 14, 2018.
