New York Sea Grant's Out-Of-Cycle Funding
- Guidelines for applying | PDF

Background:  New York Sea Grant has limited funds each year that are available to support special funding requests. Such funding requests are referred to as “out of cycle” or OOC since they do not coincide with normal Calls for Proposals.  Previous guidelines focused on Conferences and Rapid Response Research mini-grants.

What's New:  Conferences and Rapid Response Research remain as important request options, but now two additional categories have been added:  New PI (principal investigator) Mini-Grants and Development Mini-Grants.

Note:  There is no deadline.

Funding Opportunity Description:

Depending on the availability of funds, NOAA Sea Grant expects to have up to $3,000,000 available for a national competition to fund new FY 2014 marine aquaculture research projects. This is part of the overall plan to support the development of environmentally and economically sustainable ocean, coastal, or Great Lakes aquaculture.  Topical priorities for this FY 2014 competition are, briefly: 1) Research to inform pending, regulatory decisions on the local, state, or federal level leading to an information product-- such as a tool, technology, template, or model-- needed to make final decisions on a specific question regarding impacts of aquaculture; 2) Public-private research partnerships that address specific, current problems that limit a steady supply of marine or Great Lakes fingerlings; and 3) Social and/or economic research targeted to understand aquaculture issues in a larger context.  Applicants must describe how their proposed work will rapidly and significantly advance U.S. marine aquaculture development in the short-term (1-2 years after project completion).

This Federal Funding Opportunity includes information on application and criteria for aquaculture research proposals requesting a maximum of $500,000 in total federal funding for up to a two-year period. Matching funds are required. Awards are anticipated to start no later than September 1, 2014. Additional proposals from this competition may be selected for funding in the next fiscal year, subject to the availability of funds.
